Here is a look at Oklahoma State's 20-14 win over Kansas by the numbers:

0: Fourth-down conversions for Kansas in five attempts. A game after Texas converted all three of its fourth-down attempts, the OSU defense was able to get off the field every time Kansas decided to go for it.

0: Turnovers caused by the OSU defense, keeping its season total to four. It had four in the game against Kansas last season.

0: Points that Oklahoma State scored in the first quarter against Kansas on Saturday.

35: Points that the Cowboys scored in the first quarter against the Jayhawks last season.

79: Minutes of weather delay. The game was stopped at 3:06 p.m. when lightning was spotted in the area. It resumed at 4:25 p.m. with 44 seconds left in the first quarter.

80: Rushing yards by Joe Randle, a season low for the Cowboy tailback.
