*3 — Stanford's Jordan Williamson missed three field goals all season. And he missed three Monday night, including what would have been the game-winning 35-yarder at the end of regulation. Williamson was 6 of 7 on 30-39-yard kicks during the year.

*139 — Offensive MVP Justin Blackmon had a game in the second quarter, alone. After a catchless first quarter, Blackmon hauled in four catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the second quarter.

*75 — Stanford converted 6 of 8 third downs (75 percent) in the second half after only 2 of 6 in the first half. Quarterback Andrew Luck accounted for all six (five passing, one rushing).

*13 — Oklahoma State won the game despite rushing for a grand total of 13 yards against the Cardinal. Joe Randle ran 10 times for 23 yards. Jeremy Smith had one carry for 1 yard. The Cowboys rushed for 278 yards against Oklahoma in their last outing.

*35 — Showing how much Stanford wanted to milk the clock, running back Stepfan Taylor rushed 35 times for 177 yards. He accounted for 198 total yards.
