Missouri 41, Oklahoma State 31: By The Numbers

Posted: Updated:

No. 13 Oklahoma State dropped a 41-31 heartbreaker to former Big 12 rival Missouri on Friday night. Here are some key statistics from the Pokes' loss to the No. 8 Tigers:

7 — OSU senior corner Justin Gilbert intercepted a pass in the first quarter, giving him seven interceptions on the season. That is the most for a Cowboys since three-time All-American Mark Moore accomplished it in 1985 and his 12-career picks is good for fifth on the school's all-time list.

25 — The completion percentage for Mizzou quarterback James Franklin in the first quarter. OSU's secondary was on point, intercepting his first pass attempt of the game, and limiting him to 4-of-16 passing for 33 yards in the quarter. He ultimately finished just 15-of-40 passing for 174 yards with no scores.

3 — Things weren't just hard on Franklin in the completion-percentage department. OSU forced the Tigers' senior QB into two lost fumbles after the break to go with the early pick, giving him three turnovers in the game. OSU turned both fumbles into points to turn a 17-7 deficit into a 17-17 tie early in the fourth quarter.

10 — OSU's win total for the season with a final record of 10-3. Even though the Cowboys missed out on their third 11-win season in four years with nail-biter losses in their final two games, a 10-win season is nothing to sneeze at. It is just the fifth time in school history the Pokes have reached double-digit wins.

256 — Oklahoma State's stout defense gave up a season-worst 256 rushing yards to the Tigers, including 92 yards and three scores to senior running back Henry Josey. Even more uncharacteristic for the Pokes' stingy run D was the 108 yards surrendered to the scrambling-QB-tandem of Franklin and Maty Mauck.

28 — The number of Cowboy seniors who wrapped up their careers on Friday. This class is one to remember for Cowboy fans, as it finished tied atop the school's all-time list as the Pokes' winningest four-year class with 41 victories.

1945 — Still the last time OSU won the Cotton Bowl, which just so happened to also be the Cowboys' (or Aggies at the time) first bowl appearance in school history. Oklahoma A&M beat TCU 34-0. OSU is 0-3 since, with all three losses coming in the past decade.

41 — The combined points from the Cowboys and Tigers in the fourth quarter after scoring just 31 through the first three.

2 — OSU suffered just its second loss in its past 18 games against nonconference foes.

429 —
Total yards for OSU quarterback Clint Chelf. It was an up-and-down performance for the Enid native, but he produced plenty of positive plays for the Cowboys, completing 33-of-57 passes for 381 yards with two touchdowns and rushing for 48 yards and another score. He also committed three turnovers. His 57 attempts set an OSU-bowl record.
548 — Total offense for the Cowboys; 243 of which came in the fourth quarter alone.

7 (again) — The loss might be deflating, but there were things to be excited about for the future. One such example was sophomore defensive end Jimmy Bean who turned in a career-best performance with seven tackles off the edge. Included in those seven tackles were three tackles for loss and a sack.

52 —
Even though it appeared to be in doubt through three quarters, OSU managed to keep its NCAA-leading streak of consecutive 20-point games alive heading into next season. Oklahoma State has scored 20 points or more in 52-straight games. It's the second-longest streak in the country since 1978, trailing only Southern Cal's 63-game run from 2002-06.
