In 2013, the league's scheduling rotation will finally reach regularity.

STREAKING IN STYLE

OSU has now won six straight home games, after going unbeaten at Boone Pickens Stadium in 2011.

It was the Cowboys' first undefeated home season since 1984 and just the 11th in program history. The school record for consecutive home wins is 10 — from Sept 21, 2002 until Oct. 18, 2003.

More streaky notes:

* OSU has had a scoring drive of less than two minutes in 26 straight games.

* The Cowboys have forced at least two turnovers in 11 straight games.

* OSU's defense has intercepted a pass in 11 straight games.

* The Cowboys have scored at least 37 points in 13 straight home games.

COWBOYS VOW SUPPORT FOR LUNT

The line of support for true freshman quarterback Wes Lunt stretches from the head coach to the end of the roster.

And the Cowboys insist that won't stop, not even through the bumpy moments any rookie quarterback endures.

“If he makes mistakes,” said receiver Charlie Moore, “he knows we're going to support him. And when we make mistakes, he's there to support us.

“It's a team sport. And it's a beautiful thing. And I think he's going to be really comfortable because of all the hard work we've put in.”
