After Saturday’s win over Rice, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said the Cowboys running game must improve with a goal of 4.6 yards per carry.

When the Cowboys scored 40 or more points a year ago, they averaged at least 4.6 yards per carry each time.

Here’s a look at the Cowboys’ rushing totals in those games and the first three games of the 2009 season.
