Here's a look at Oklahoma State's dismantling of Savannah State by the numbers:

* 0: Incompletions thrown by Wes Lunt. The true freshman started his college career with a perfect 11-for-11, 129-yard performance.

* 9: OSU touchdown drives lasting 90 seconds or less. That was every scoring drive in the first half and the first two of the second half.

* 9: Rushing touchdowns for OSU, which broke the school record of seven set in 1977 vs. UTEP.

* 10: Cowboys who made their first career start Saturday.

* 35: Points scored by the Cowboys in the first quarter, tying a school record for most points in a quarter.

* 94: Cowboy players who saw action against Savannah State.

* 100: Degrees at kickoff.

* 127: Degrees on the field at kickoff.

* 153: Punt return yards against Savannah State. OSU had 79 punt return yards all of last season.

* 546: Pushups done by the ROTC cadets. They do pushups after every OSU score, and they do the same number of pushups as points on the board.
