Cowboy Notebook: OSU 38, Texas 26

Two streaks got a lot of press this week. One, Mack Brown entered Saturday's game 13-0 in the week following the Red River Shootout. Secondly, Oklahoma State had never lost a road game with Brandon Weeden as the starting quarterback.

OSU's streak stayed alive as OSU beat UT to move to 6-0 on the season and 8-0 on the road under Weeden. Weeden is also 17-2 as OSU's starting quarterback.

Also, the Horns were 12-0 against OSU all-time when they entered the game ranked in the top 25. That streak, too, is now over.

One For The Record Books

The OSU/Texas all-time series isn't one that has a lot of highlights for the Pokes over the years but OSU did some moving and shaking in the record books with Saturday's win.

OSU's 38 points were the most ever scored by a Cowboy team in Austin.

The Cowboys became the first school since 1910-11 to beat UT in Austin in back-to-back seasons.

OSU moved UT into the negative category in all-time wins and losses against ranked teams. Texas is now 127-128-8 all-time against ranked foes.

Yesterday was OSU's eighth-consecutive road victory, tying Oregon for the second longest streak in the country. Virginia Tech has the longest current streak at 10.

Quick Strike Offense

The Cowboys first scoring drive of the game looked a lot like last week's thumping of Kansas when the starters were scoring at will on short drives. The Pokes' first touchdown drive against the Longhorns covered 64-yards in 5 plays and took just 1:17 off clock. The drive was highlighted by an amazing Josh Cooper snag that set up a 1-yard Joseph Randle touchdown touchdown run.

Big Day For Blatnick

OSU senior defensive end had statistically the best game of his career against Texas. He tallied a career-high nine tackles and recorded four tackles for loss. His four tackles behind the line was the most by a Cowboy defender since Nathan Peterson had five against Baylor in 2007.
