Here's a look at Oklahoma State's 70-28 win over Kansas by the numbers

5.0: Points for every minute that the Cowboys had possession of the ball in the first half.

35: Points by the Cowboys in the first quarter, tying the modern-day school record for points in a quarter (Southern Illinois, 1973, and Baylor, 2002).

56: Points by the Cowboys in the first half, tying the modern-day school record for points in a half (Southern Illinois, 1973).

70: Points by the Cowboys in the game, typing the modern-day school record (Southern Illinois, 1973).

85.7: Completion percentage for Brandon Weeden (24 of 28), a school record with a minimum of 20 attempts.

385: Total pushups by the Army ROTC cadets. Every time OSU scores, they do the same number of pushups as the Cowboys have points on the board.

600: Yards of offense by the Cowboys, their third game this season of 500 yards or more and their second of at least 600 yards.
