Oklahoma State 33, Kansas State 29: By The Numbers

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma State put together a thrilling come-from-behind effort to top Kansas State 33-29 in Stillwater on Saturday. Here are some key numbers from the victory:

4 – OSU only had four first downs in the second half but all of them came on consecutive plays to fuel the Pokes' six-play, 75-yard game-winning drive in the fourth quarter.

5 – While first downs were few and far between for the offense, the defense showed up in a big way forcing five turnovers, all of which came in the second half. OSU forced a pair of fumbles and an interception in the third, resulting in two Ben Grogan field goals. Then the Cowboys snagged interceptions on KSU's final two possessions to put the game away.

1 – The number of penalties for the Cowboys, totaling just seven yards, a week after committing 10 in a loss at West Virginia. This is a definite positive for OSU moving forward and played a role in the Pokes' victory on Saturday.

12 – As well as OSU did avoid flags, K-State was on the opposite end of the spectrum. The Wildcats were called for 12 penalties for 92 yards.

3.4 – OSU's run game continued to struggle, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry. However, Jeremy Smith looked much better and more decisive, running for 56 yards on 11 carries for a 5.1 average and a touchdown. Walsh also found the end zone with his feet.

10 – The OSU offense might not be producing like fans have grown accustomed to but it's not for a lack of capable receivers. Ten different Pokes recorded a reception on Saturday, led by Tracy Moore's six. Jhajuan Seales led OSU in yards with 87 on four catches, two of which set up touchdowns.

299 – K-State quarterback Daniel Sams saw the most snaps he has this season, going for 299 yards of total offense against OSU. He passed for 181 and two scores on 15-of-21 attempts and rushed for 118 and another score, but he threw three interceptions and fumbled once.

3 – After getting a 43-yard attempt blocked and returned for a touchdown, freshman kicker Ben Grogan settled in and connected on his final three attempts to help deliver the victory. He finished the day 4-for-5 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points. He made field goals of 30, 34, 23 and 28 yards.

8 – Tackles for senior linebacker Shaun Lewis to lead the Cowboys. Lewis had a monster day with a tackle for loss, a forced fumble and an interception, which he returned 24 yards. He also made a shoe-string tackle on Sams to prevent what would have been a big run on K-State's final drive of the game.

14 – OSU has now won 14 of its past 15 games in Boone Pickens Stadium since the start of the 2011 season.

27 – The Pokes extended their nation-leading streak to 27 consecutive games with a scoring drive lasting two minutes or less. OSU's offense didn't look like itself on Saturday but when they did score they did it quickly. Out of OSU's seven scoring drives, six took less than two minutes off the clock.
