No. 18 Oklahoma State earned its most impressive victory of the season with a dominant 52-34 victory against No. 15 Texas Tech on the road. Here are some key stats from the victory:


2 – Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy and Tech's Kliff Kingsbury are the only two Big 12 head coaches at their alma mater.

3 – Tech punter Ryan Erxleben has had three punts blocked in his career; all three have come against Oklahoma State. He had a first-half punt blocked by OSU's Derek Branson on Saturday and had two sent back by Zack Craig last year in Stillwater.

110 – Points scored by Oklahoma State in its past two games after scoring just 78 through its first three conference games.

26 – Texas Tech's national rank in scoring defense entering the game, allowing just 21.2 per contest. OSU scored 21 in the first eight minutes of the game en route to a season-worst 52 allowed by the Raiders. The Cowboys scored 14 more points than any team Tech has faced in 2013, which was 38 by OU last week.

623 – OSU made changes in the backfield prior to last weekend's victory against ISU by replacing QB J.W. Walsh and RB Jeremy Smith with Clint Chelf and Desmond Roland, respectively. The Cowboy entered Ames ranked 95th in the country in rushing at 136.5 yards per game. Since the switch, the Pokes have put up 623 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground the past two games.

No. 10 – Chelf bounced back from a rough 78-yard passing performance last week with a season-high 211 yards against Tech. Chelf was 18-of-34 passing with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. He also rushed for 88 yards and two TDs on a whopping 14.7 yards per carry.

67 – Chelf's 67-yard touchdown run in the third quarter was the longest scoring run by a Cowboy quarterback since 1982.

96 – Speaking of solid performances, Dez Roland followed up his Big 12 Player of the Week showing against ISU with 96 hard-earned yards and three touchdowns against the Raiders. He now has seven rushing touchdowns in two starts.

8 – Chelf spread the wealth, connecting with eight different receivers on his 18 completions. Josh Stewart led with six catches but only had 27 yards. Jhajuan Seals had 78 yards on three receptions.

15 – TTU tight end Jace Amaro was a thorn in the Pokes' side, putting up a ridiculous 15 catches for 174 yards and a TD.

103 – That was the Red Raider's FBS rank in turnover ratio entering the contest and the opportunistic Cowboy defense took advantage, forcing three turnovers. OSU ranked seventh nationally heading into the game.

5 – Consecutive wins for Oklahoma State in the series. OSU has outscored Texas Tech by 140 points in those five wins, including 116 in the past three.
