2012 OKLAHOMA STATE spring guide

INTRODUCTION

SPRING NOTES Springing Forward Oklahoma State begins its eighth spring under head coach Mike Gundy on March 12. The workouts will be spread out over five weeks (including a week off for spring break) and culminate on April 21 with the final scrimmage of the spring. New Faces Oklahoma State has added some new faces since its victory in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Four studentathletes enrolled in January and are participating in spring drills. They are defensive lineman Calvin Barnett, tight end Blake Jackson, quarterback West Lunt and linebacker Jeremiah Tshimanga. Barnett and Jackson are transfers from two-year schools while Lunt and Tshimanga are fresh off their high school campuses. Staff Change OSU also has a new member of the coaching staff with Van Malone joining the program from Tulsa. The Texas alum has also worked at Texas A&M. He takes over for the departed Joe DeForest. For the first time since his first two seasons as head coach (2005-2006), Mike Gundy returns both of his coordinators (Todd Monken on offense and Bill Young on defense). Technically he returns three as linebackers coach Glenn Spencer added the title of co-defensive coordinator last season.

More Familiar Than You Think Despite the loss of many headliners, the OSU football cupboard is not bare. Here’s what’s back… • OSU lost three starters on the offensive line but that might be deceiving. The Cowboys also return four players with starting experience up front. Tackles Michael Bowie and Parker Graham were part-time starters at tackle last season. Lane Taylor returns as an anchor and returning starter at guard, and Jonathan Rush was a starter in 2010 and in 2011 before being lost to injury at Texas A&M. He has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA. • The top four rushers return intact (Joseph Randle, Jeremy Smith, Herschel Sims and Desmond Roland.) • OSU loses its top two receivers (production wise) in Justin Blackmon and Josh Cooper, but returns three of its top five pass catchers in Tracy Moore, running back Joseph Randle and Isaiah Anderson. • OSU returns six of its top seven tacklers, including its top three in safety Daytawion Lowe and linebackers Alex Elkins and Caleb Lavey.

By The Numbers Oklahoma State returns 19 starters with the breakdown including eight on offense (when including fullback and tight end), eight on defense and three specialists. OSU also returns 50 lettermen. Under the lost column are 10 starters (including three offensive linemen, three receivers, a quarterback, two defensive ends and a safety). OSU will return 50 lettermen with 20 lettermen lost.

Depth Perception Based on the depth chart for the Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma State returns 36 of its top 51 players. That total does not include Jonathan Rush, who would have been a part of that chart had he been healthy. It also does not include Quinn Sharp, OSU’s all-everything kicker/punter, who in fact, starts at two positions.

OSU Head Coaches By Winning Pct. 1. Lynn “Pappy” Waldorf (1929-33) .735 2. Mike Gundy (2005-) .662

Alex Elkins

The Gundy Watch Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy was the recipient of the Bear Bryant Award and the Eddie Robinson Award as the national coach of the year in 2011. In 2012 he is likely to add another achievement as he stands on the brink of becoming OSU’s all-time winningest coaches. OSU Wins By A Head Coach 1. Pat Jones (1984-1994) 2. Mike Gundy (2005-)

The Season That Was Oklahoma State is coming off one of the most memorable seasons in school history. Some of the high points: • Oklahoma State won its first conference title since 1976 and its first outright title since the 1940s. • OSU set a school record with 12 wins. It was the second straight season in which a new school high was established for wins in a season. OSU was 11-2 in 2010. • OSU finished an all-time best third in the Associated Press and USA Today polls, as well as third in the final BCS standings. • Along with Gundy’s national coach of the year honors, OSU also had five players named first-team All-Americans, including Biletnikoff Award winner Justin Blackmon. • OSU is coming off its first BCS victory.

2012 OKLAHOMA STATE spring guide

INTRODUCTION

SPRING NOTES Reviewing The Defensive Numbers A wrap-up of some team numbers for the 2011 Cowboys: • Oklahoma State led the nation with 44 forced turnovers. It was five more TOs gained than runner-up North Carolina State and an incredible 15 more than the next best Big 12 total (15 by Baylor). • The Cowboy defense finished second nationally with 24 passes intercepted and second with 20 fumbles recovered. • OSU finished No. 12 nationally and first in the Big 12 in red zone defense, allowing 35 scores on 48 opportunities • OSU finished No. 24 nationally in tackles for loss with seven per game. Reviewing The Offensive Numbers It was another big year for the OSU offense: • OSU finished second nationally and set a school record with 387 passing yards per game. • OSU finished third nationally and set another school record in total offense (545.9 yards per game). • Oklahoma State finished second nationally in scoring at 48.7 points per game. Speaking Of Scoring… Oklahoma State’s 2011 Cowboys rival the famed 1988 attack when debating the best offenses in school history. How close are the two outfits? When including the Holiday Bowl, the 1988 Cowboys scored 48.66 points per game. The 2011 Cowboys averaged 48.69 points per game to set a new school standard.

Two-Year Run Over the last two seasons, Oklahoma State has put together one of the great runs in school history. The Cowboys are 23-3 during that time frame, including a 15-3 conference mark with a Big 12 South co-championship (2010) and an outright Big 12 title (2011) to show for their efforts. Over the last two seasons, OSU’s 23 wins are just one short of leading the country. Most Wins Last Two Seasons 24 TCU, Boise State, Oregon, LSU 23 Oklahoma State, Stanford The Long Run Oklahoma State is also one of the nation’s winningest programs dating back to 2008. Winningest Teams Since 2008 1. Boise State 50 2. Alabama 48 3. TCU 47 4. Oregon 44 5. Virginia Tech 42 Oklahoma 42 7. Oklahoma State 41 LSU 41 Utah 41

Oklahoma State (Big 12) 20-5 .800 On Schedule The 2012 Oklahoma State schedule will provide a test for the Cowboys. Some notes about the challenges ahead: • Five upcoming opponents won at least 10 games in 2011 and seven of them won eight games or more. • Eight schools made bowl appearances last season and six are coming off bowl victories. • OSU will face three conference champions from 2011 in TCU (Mountain West), West Virginia (Big East) and Louisiana (Sun Belt). BCS Vs. BCS In 2012, only two regular-season matchups will feature a reigning BCS bowl champion against a reigning BCS bowl champion. The first is opening weekend when defending Sugar Bowl champion Michigan faces defending national champion Alabama in Arlington. The second takes place Nov. 10 when defending Orange Bowl champ West Virginia visits defending Fiesta Bowl champ Oklahoma State.

Conference Play, Too Oklahoma State has also been one of the most dominating teams in conference play as well. OSU is 20-5 in the Big 12 over the past three seasons. That record is fifth best in a BCS conference over the last three seasons.

2012 OKLAHOMA STATE spring guide

INTRODUCTION

SPRING NOTES Randle On The Charts Rising junior running back Joseph Randle enters 2012 as OSU’s headline offensive player after turning in one of the most productive sophomore seasons in OSU history. Randle is coming off a 2011 that saw him rush for 1,216 yards, which represents the third best total by an OSU sophomore. He also rushed for 24 touchdowns, second only to Barry Sanders’ 37 during his 1988 Heisman season. Randle finished fourth nationally in scoring last season with 156 points with 24 rushing touchdowns and two touchdown receptions (12 points per game). He was the nation’s highest scoring sophomore. OSU’s Top Sophomore Rushing Seasons 1. Kendall Hunter (2008) 1,555 2. Thurman Thomas (1985) 1,553 3. Joseph Randle (2011) 1,216 Randle’s Big Picture Joseph Randle will enter his junior season No. 25 all-time at OSU with 1,668 rushing yards. Another 1,000-yard season would have him knocking on OSU’s career top 10 in that category. He will also enter the season already in OSU’s top 20 (19th) in career scoring with 174 points and No. 8 all-time in rushing touchdowns with 26. Position Changes There has been little tinkering with position changes this spring. Joe Okafor has moved from the defensive line to the offensive line. Tyler Johnson, who backed up Caleb Lavey last season at middle linebacker, will take a run at defensive end during the spring with redshirt freshman Ryan Simmons now listed second on the depth chart at MLB.

Season Tickets Final Count OSU is coming off its most successful season at the box office. The school set a new record for season ticket sales for the second time in three seasons. The new high-water mark is 48,714. OSU also set a school record for average attendance at 57,229 per game. In 2011, OSU drew four of the top five crowds in school history, including a single-game record of 58,895 for Kansas State. Perfect At Home The large crowds help play a part in another milestone for OSU in 2011. OSU went undefeated at home for the first time since 1984 and for just the 11th time in school history. OSU has had just four perfect home seasons since 1940 and just two since 1957. The O-Line Numbers Oklahoma State’s returning offensive linemen have a total of 62 career starts between them, including 36 by Lane Taylor, which leads all returning Cowboys. OSU gets a big boost with the return of Jonathan Rush, who has 16 career starts. Tackles Parker Graham and Michael Bowie contribute five starts each. Rushing To Judgment Oklahoma State returns its top four rushers from 2011 with the combination of Joseph Randle, Jeremy Smith, Herschel Sims and Desmond Roland combining for 2,199 yards, 35 rushing touchdowns and 10 100-yard rushing games.

Lowe And Behold Safety Daytawion Lowe led OSU in tackles last season with 97. Lowe will lead an experienced defense in 2012 as the Cowboys return their top three tacklers, and six of their top seven. Only safety Markelle Martin, who tied for third last season with 74 tackles, is missing from the top seven. Back At ‘Backer Oklahoma State returns all three starters at linebacker in Shaun Lewis, Alex Elkins and Caleb Lavey. In fact, of last year’s top six linebackers, only James Thomas has departed. The experienced linebacker corps has also been enhanced with some newcomers as sophomore Nico Ornelas and redshirt freshman Ryan Simmons now on the depth chart. Even better news for OSU is that the current depth chart at linebacker once again just features one senior (Elkins). Secondary While OSU has a deep and proven linebacker corps, the secondary is not far behind as three of four starters return in the defensive backfield. The lone missing starter is All-America safety Markelle Martin. OSU has an outstanding corner duo in returning All-Big 12 corner Brodrick Brown and second-team all-league pick (by Associated Press) Justin Gilbert. The leading tackler from season’s team, Daytawion Lowe, is also back for his junior season at safety.

Depth Chart A quick look at the first depth chart of the season: • Eight seniors are listed as starters on offense. Those totals include seniors at tight end and fullback. • The biggest cluster of seniors is in the offensive line where Michael Bowie, Lane Taylor, Jonathan Rush, and Evan Epstein are all listed as senior starters entering spring drills. • Two more seniors, Isaiah Anderson and Tracy Moore, are listed as starters at receiver. • Five seniors are starters on defense, including defensive ends Cooper Bassett, Nigel Nicholas and Ryan Robinson. • The spring two-deep shows a balanced roster featuring 13 seniors, 24 juniors, 14 sophomores, 11 redshirt freshmen and one true freshman out of the 62 players listed. • Fifteen seniors are currently listed as starters, with 11 junior starters, one sophomore starter and no freshmen. • The junior class is heavily represented on defense with seven starters in that class.

MIKE

GUNDY HEAD COACH EIGHTH YEAR | OKLAHOMA STATE, 1990

• 2011 winner of the Paul “Bear” Bryant College Coach of the Year Award and the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award presented by the Football Writers Association of America after leading Oklahoma State to an 12-1 record, its first-ever Big 12 championship and BCS bowl game appearance in 2011. In guiding the Cowboys to the 2011 Big 12 title, OSU became the first school other than Oklahoma or Texas to win the conference since 2003. • Finalist for the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award and the Liberty Mutual National Coach of the Year Award in both 2010 and 2011. • 2010 Big 12 Coach of the Year after leading Oklahoma State to an 11-2 overall record and a share of the Big 12 South title. • Dating back to the start of the 2008 season, Gundy has led the Cowboys to 41 overall victories, which is the seventh-highest total in the nation during that time. • Has coached four major national award winners since 2008, as punter Matt Fodge won the Ray Guy Award in 2008, kicker Dan Bailey won the Lou Groza Award in 2010 and receiver Justin Blackmon won the Biletnikoff Award in 2010 and 2011. • Since 2008 alone, Gundy has coached three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award given to the nation’s top wide receiver, plus finalists for the Rimington Award given to the nation’s top center, the Mackey Award given to the nation’s top tight end, the Outland Trophy given to the nation’s top interior lineman, the Doak Walker Award given to the nation’s top running back, the Ray Guy Award given to the nation’s top punter and the Lou Groza Award given to the nation’s top kicker.

In 2005, Mike Gundy could have been described as a sentimental selection as the head football coach at his alma mater. He was a decorated Oklahoma high school athlete, one of the most successful quarterbacks in OSU history, and he had served on the staff of the three previous OSU head coaches. His ties to the school ran deep for him and his family. Most importantly, he was considered a Cowboy by Cowboys. Seven seasons later, and with Gundy on the cusp of becoming the winningest coach in OSU football history, it appears Oklahoma State has moved past a sentimental choice as head coach and into a new era of OSU football. Oklahoma State’s 23 wins over the past two seasons, 31 wins over the past three seasons and 41 wins over the past four seasons are all school bests. OSU has an outright Big 12 title and a share of the old Big 12 South title over the past two seasons -- and Oklahoma State is coming off its first Bowl Championship Series appearance and victory. The school has finished the last two seasons ranked among the top 10, including a school-best third in 2011. The 2012 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl champs were just .0086 of a point from an appearance in the 2012 BCS National Championship Game.

The run to the Big 12 title in 2011 earned Gundy the Eddie Robinson Award as the national coach of the year as selected by the Football Writers Association of America (after he was a finalist for the same honor in 2010). He was also tabbed as the Paul “Bear” Bryant College Coach of the Year Award, was voted national coach of the year by American Football Monthly and was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual national coach of the year award. The national accolades came just one year after Gundy was named Big 12 coach of the year in 2010 for leading OSU to a share of the Big 12 South title. The last two seasons represent the first 11-win and 12-win seasons in Cowboy history and OSU has not won less than nine games in a season since 2007. It is a consistency that has never been in place in school history. OSU was 12-15 after 27 games under Gundy. Since then, the Cowboys have gone 47-15 and are now riding a school-record streak of six consecutive bowl appearances. Gundy has coached 11 firstteam All-Americans during his short head coaching career and four individual national award winners. And during his tenure, OSU has been firmly established as one of the most entertaining offensive teams in America. Four times in the last five years Oklahoma State has been among the nation’s top 10 in total offense.

The 2011 senior class that Gundy attracted to Oklahoma State is the winningest group in school history.

• Has coached 11 All-Americans in the last four seasons, including a pair of unanimous All-Americans: OL Russell Okung in 2009 and WR Justin Blackmon in 2010 and 2011. • Under his watch, Oklahoma State is one of only three schools from automatic-qualifying BCS conferences to win at least nine games each of the last four seasons. The other two are Alabama and Oregon. • Since 2009, Oklahoma State’s 20-5 record against the Big 12 is the best mark in the league. • In quarterback Brandon Weeden, Hunter and Blackmon, Gundy coached the first trio of teammates in NCAA history to post 4,000 yards passing, 1,500 yards rushing and 1,500 yards receiving in the same season. 10

2012 OKLAHOMA STATE spring guide

STAFF The Cowboys finished 2011 averaging 48.7 points per game. In fact, only once in the last four years has OSU averaged less than 40 points per game. During that same time frame, OSU has churned out elite offensive talent. Offensive lineman Russell Okung, receiver Dez Bryant and tight end Brandon Pettigrew were all taken in the first round of recent NFL Drafts. Two-time Biletnikoff Award winner Justin Blackmon is likely to follow in their footsteps in April. Records have been falling off the field as well. The 2011 Cowboy were supported like no other in school history as new school marks were set for season tickets (48,710) and average attendance (57,229). Four of the top five single-game attendance highs in school history came in 2011, including a record 58,895 for the thrilling win over Kansas State. In 2010 Gundy’s squad set a Big 12 record with nine first-team selections. While still in the infant stages of his head coaching career, Gundy’s coaching tree has already blossomed. Former Gundy coordinators include Tim Beckman, newly named head coach at Illinois, Larry Fedora, newly named head coach at North Carolina, and West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen. Under Gundy, Oklahoma State has won at least seven games in six-straight seasons for the first time ever and at least nine games in four straight seasons for the first time. In 2010 and 2011, Oklahoma State reached 11 wins in consecutive seasons for the first time in school history. The Cowboys are 23-3 over the last two seasons and OSU has the Big 12’s best conference record since 2009 at 20-5. During that same time frame, OSU has been one of the country’s best road teams with a 10-1 record. OSU reached another milestone in 2011 with wins over five ranked teams. Oklahoma State has reached the Associated Press top 10 in four consecutive seasons and climbed to an all-time high of second in 2011 before finishing in third. Under Gundy, OSU has not only set a school record for first-team allleague selections, but also for first-team academic all-conference selections. Gundy and Oklahoma State agreed on a new contract in January. The agreement keeps the former Cowboy quarterback in charge of OSU’s football fortunes through at least 2019. And it is documentation of the progress that Oklahoma State has made since the 1990 OSU grad became the school’s head coach. His record of 59-30 hardly describes the renaissance of Cowboy football. Under Gundy’s guidance, OSU’s Big 12 record has improved from 1-7 in 2005 to 3-5 in 2006, 4-4 in 2007, 5-3 in 2008, 6-2 in 2009 and 2010 and 8-1 in 2011. During that same time frame, the overall win total has gone from four to 12. Gundy was hired as the school’s 22nd head football coach on Jan. 3, 2005. He had been serving as OSU’s offensive coordinator under Les Miles. It was the culmination of a legendary career for one of Oklahoma’s all-time great high school athletes. The first year was tough. Oklahoma State was 4-7 with one conference win

and a sixth-place finish in the Big 12 South. Gundy, however, never wavered. He faced early and difficult decisions in his head coaching career. Those challenges included the dismissal of several players, some who figured to be headliners going into the 2005 campaign. He also had to deal with the shocking death of Vernon Grant, an inspirational team leader and multi-year starter. Gundy handled the early adversity with a steady hand beyond his years. The young Cowboys spent year one in transition with a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator and a new defensive coordinator. In 2006, OSU’s second year under Gundy, the record improved to 7-6, with a win in the Independence Bowl over Alabama. OSU fielded one of the country’s most exciting offensive squads, displayed some talented underclassmen on defense and proved capable of bumping helmets with the elite of the Big 12. And that win total, as impressive as it was, could have been even more pronounced as four Cowboy losses were decided on the final play of the game. The season included a win over Big 12 North champ Nebraska and a last-play loss to South champ Oklahoma. The 34-31 win over Alabama in the PetroSun Independence Bowl was OSU’s

fourth bowl appearance in five seasons, but marked just the second postseason win for OSU since Barry Sanders hung up his orange-colored cleats in 1988. Scoring was up by more than two touchdowns per game as the 2006 edition of Cowboy football became one of the most prolific offensive teams in school history, averaging more than 35 points per game. Oklahoma State joined undefeated Boise State as the only two teams in the country to average more than 200 yards per game rushing and passing. OSU’s 2006 roster also produced some of the Big 12’s brightest stars, including the offensive newcomer of the year in first-team all-Big 12 receiver Adarius Bowman, and defensive freshman of the year in safety Andre Sexton. Bowman and offensive lineman Corey Hilliard were consensus first-team all-Big 12 selections. Bowman was Gundy’s second straight offensive newcomer of the year (Mike Hamilton in 2005). The Cowboys finished Gundy’s second year seventh nationally and tops in the Big 12 in rushing, seventh nationally in scoring and No. 16 in total offense. The conference rushing title was a first for the Pokes. OSU followed up that ground attack with more team rushing titles in 2007, 2008 and 2009. In 2007, despite facing the NCAA’s toughest schedule, the Cowboys won their second straight bowl game (Insight) and the climb up the Big 12 ladder continued with OSU finishing third in the South. Oklahoma State entered the final week of the regular season playing for a share of the Big 12 South championship. The bowl titles marked the first time since 1987 and 1988 (Gundy’s playing days) that the Cowboys won postseason games in consecutive seasons. The Cowboys’ 45-14 win at Nebraska was OSU’s first in Lincoln since the Kennedy Administration. The Cowboy offense followed up its 2006 success with something unprecedented in 2007 when it finished the season with 3,161 rushing yards and 3,161 passing yards. OSU finished seventh nationally in total offense (486.3 yards per game). The season culminated with a 49-33 win over Indiana in the Insight Bowl and sophomore quarterback Zac Robinson set a new OSU singleseason record in total offense (since broken by Brandon Weeden). The 2008 season drew headlines. That version of the Cowboys became one of the most decorated in school history. Two sophomores, receiver Dez Bryant and running back Kendall Hunter, became first-team All-Americans. Quarterback Zac Robinson was a finalist for the Manning Award and a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew was a finalist for the Mackey Award and punter Matt Fodge was the winner of the Ray Guy Award. Junior Perrish Cox was voted a first-team All-America kick returner. Also in 2008, the Cowboys ascended into the top 10 for the first time in 20 years, climbed to sixth in the BCS rankings and picked up a road win against a member of the Associated Press top five (Missouri). That season culminated with OSU’s first appearance in the Holiday Bowl since 1988. In 2009, OSU was ranked in the top 25 all season, reaching as high as fifth in the AP poll during its 9-4 run. Along the way, OSU set a new record for season ticket sales, and played in front of the largest home crowds in school history (all of those attendance marks have since been broken). OSU entered the final week of the regular season very much in contention for its first BCS bowl berth and the Cowboys’ 6-2 Big 12 record propelled OSU to No. 2 in the Big 12 bowl pecking order and an appearance in the Cotton Bowl. It was a satisfying achievement considering the onslaught of injuries the Cowboys battled throughout the year.

Mike Gundy has coached four major award-winners, including two-time Biletnikoff Awardwinner Justin Blackmon

The 2010, season was considered a break-through season as OSU finished 11-2 and closed a season in the top 10 for the first time since 1984. Brandon Weeden became Oklahoma State’s first All-Big 12 quarterback, Justin Blackmon brought home the Biletnikoff Award and Dan Bailey won the Lou Groza Award. The Cowboys generated 520 yards of offense per game and unveiled a new-look passing attack that ranked second nationally (346 yards per game) and helped OSU score 44.2 points per contest. All-America accolades rolled in for running back Kendall Hunter, Blackmon, punter Quinn Sharp and kicker Dan Bailey. The share of the Big 12 South title was a first for OSU as the Cowboys won 10

games in the regular season for the first time ever and for the fourth time overall. The ’10 squad also became the first OSU team to go undefeated on the road since 1945. All of those achievements were reached by a team selected to finish fifth in the six-team Big 12 South. But 2010 simply set the stage for 2011. One year after no expectations greeted the Cowboys, 2011 featured unprecedented demands of OSU. The Cowboys were ranked No. 9 in the AP poll (tying the all-time preseason high set in 2009) to start the season and the squad proved up to the task. The Cowboys raced to a 10-0 start and reached No. 2 in the AP balloting and in the BCS standings before finishing third in both. OSU clinched its first outright conference title with a lopsided win over Oklahoma and followed up that showing with a Fiesta Bowl victory over No. 4 Stanford to put the wraps on a 12-1 season. Blackmon repeated as the Biletnikoff Award winner and five Cowboys (Blackmon, kicker Quinn Sharp, offensive linemen Levy Adcock and Grant Garner, and safety Markelle Martin) earned All-America honors. OSU won at Texas for the second straight season, knocked off five ranked opponents, beat four teams that won 10 games and knocked off seven teams in the final BCS rankings’ top 30. The Cowboys passed for 387 yards per game (second nationally), and scored 48.7 points per game (also second nationally). OSU led the nation in turnovers forced (44) and turnover margin (plus-1.62 per game) Mike Gundy first arrived on the Oklahoma State campus in 1986 after a heavily-decorated prep career. He became a four-year starter at OSU (198689), and led the Cowboys to a pair of bowl wins, the 1987 Sun Bowl over West Virginia and the 1988 Holiday Bowl over Wyoming. During those two seasons, OSU accumulated a 20-4 record. Gundy ended his career as the Big Eight Conference’s all-time leader in passing and total offense. More than 20 years after his playing career, his name is still featured throughout the OSU record books. Most of his personal marks stood until Gundy assumed head coaching duties. He began his college career by throwing 138 passes before tossing his first career interception. That streak remained an NCAA record until 2008. After graduation, Gundy joined the Oklahoma State football staff. He coached the receivers in 1990, the quarterbacks from 1991-1993 and in 1995, and served as offensive coordinator during the 1994 season in the final year for Gundy’s college coach, Pat Jones. Gundy has coached in Stillwater under each of the three previous Cowboy head coaches (Jones, Bob Simmons and Les Miles). He spent one season at Baylor (1996) as quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator before heading to the ACC, where he coached at Maryland (1997-2000). He returned to Stillwater in 2001 as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator, and he also coached OSU quarterbacks. Gundy is just the third Oklahoma State graduate to assume the head coaching duties in Stillwater. Jim Lookabaugh (1939-49) and Floyd Gass (1969-71) were the others. His 59 wins rank second all-time at OSU. He is just four victories of breaking the career win total of 62 held by Gundy’s college coach, Pat Jones. Gundy and his wife, Kristen (also an OSU graduate), have three children, Gavin, Gunnar and Gage.

DOUG

MEACHAM INSIDE RECEIVERS EIGHTH YEAR | OKLAHOMA STATE, 1988

Coaching Career • Doug Meacham has been part of two of the most successful eras in Oklahoma State football history, first as a player from 1984-87 and now as a coach from 2005 to the present.

PERSONAL • During his playing days at Oklahoma State, Meacham was on teams that participated in four bowl games (1983 Bluebonnet, 1984 Gator, 1985 Gator and 1987 Sun). He was a three-year starter for the Cowboys and had a string of 35 consecutive starts. During his Oklahoma State playing career, the Cowboys fashioned an overall record of 34-9. • Individually, he earned all-Big Eight honors and was an honorable mention AllAmerican as a senior. He was a captain of the 1987 Sun Bowl team that defeated West Virginia. As an offensive lineman, Meacham blocked for both Thurman Thomas, a twotime Big Eight Player of the Year, and Barry Sanders, the 1988 Heisman Trophy winner. • In high school, he was a three-year starter and was a two-time all-district selection. • Meacham was born Dec. 16, 1964, in Arlington, Texas. He is married to the former Kendall Deas and they have three children: Peyton, Cole and Brooks.

• Oklahoma State led the Big 12 and ranked second nationally in both scoring offense and passing offense in 2011. The Cowboys ranked third in the country in total offense. OSU scored more than 50 points six times and broke the 60-point mark in three contests during the 2011 season. • Helped coach an Oklahoma State offense that has averaged at least 40 points per game in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011. • Meacham has been part of Oklahoma State offensive coaching staffs that led the Cowboys to top-20 national finishes in total offense in 2006 (16th), 2007 (seventh), 2008 (sixth), 2010 (third) and 2011 (third). • Meacham coached inside receiver Josh Cooper to a spot on the OSU career top-10 in both receptions and receiving yards. • With Meacham serving as his position coach, Cooper ranked in the top 10 in the Big 12 and the top 50 nationally in receptions per game in both 2010 and 2011. • Meacham served as OSU’s passing game coordinator in 2008 and 2009. • Among his charges at tight end during his OSU tenure is 2007 first-team all-Big 12 tight end Brandon Pettigrew, who went on to become a first-round draft choice (No. 20 overall) of the Detroit Lions. • Under Meacham’s guidance, Pettigrew was a finalist for the 2008 Mackey Award presented to the nation’s top tight end. • Meacham helped coach a 2008 Cowboy offense that ranked among the top 10 nationally in rushing, total offense, scoring and pass efficiency. • Meacham coached Pettigrew to a 2007 season in which he had 35 catches for 540 yards (15.4 yards per catch) and four touchdowns and was a first-team all-Big 12 honoree. • Meacham was instrumental in establishing a record-setting offense at Samford. He directed an attack in 2004 that set several school records, including passing yards (2,986), pass completions (256) and completion percentage (59.8). • Prior to Samford, Meacham worked the same kind of magic at Henderson State, where he was offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. During the 2000 season at Henderson State, Meacham coached an offense that broke two Division II national passing and receiving records, four Gulf South Conference records and nine school passing and receiving records. • Meacham’s history of record-breaking offenses, however, began even before his stint at Henderson. He joined the staff at Jacksonville State in 1997 and in just his first season, JSU went 7-4 and recorded the biggest turnaround in Division I-AA. During his tenure at Jacksonville State, Meacham’s offensive unit broke 21 school passing and receiving records. • Meacham also spent three years as the offensive coordinator at Georgia Military College.

JOE

WICKLINE OFFENSIVE LINE EIGHTH YEAR | FLORIDA, 1983

Coaching Career

• Joe Wickline is in his eighth year at Oklahoma State and his 31st year as a college football coach. He is one of America’s elite offensive line coaches. • He is one of the key figures on a staff that led OSU to a share of the Big 12 South title in 2010 and the outright conference crown in 2011. The Pokes appeared in - and won their first-ever BCS bowl game with a victory over Stanford in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl to cap the 2011 season.

including first-teamers Lomas Brown, Shannon Snell and Jeff Zimmerman. Wickline also coached Max Starks, a former tackle for the Gators who now plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. • Wickline helped Florida’s running game improve from 122.4 yards per game to 155.8 yards per game during his three years as offensive line coach. The 2004 Gator running game finished the regular season second in the SEC in yards per carry (4.5). • He was the running game coordinator for Middle Tennessee in 2001 when Dwon Hicks broke the school record for single-season rushing touchdowns (20). The Blue Raiders also set new standards for total offense per game (481.4) and total offense per play (6.8) that season and ranked fifth nationally in total offense.

PERSONAL

• Wickline played at Florida, where he was a three-year letterman. He was selected to play in the Blue-Gray Game following his Gator career. Wickline also lettered one season in wrestling. • He was born Oct. 23, 1958, in St. Petersburg, Fla., and earned his bachelor’s degree in health, physical education and recreation from Florida in 1983. He is married to the former Nicki Sturdivant and has three children, Lacey, Kelby and Lauren.

• Wickline coached two of the last three recipients of Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year honors, with tackle Russell Okung securing the recognition in 2009 and center Grant Garner taking home the accolade in 2011. • Since 2006, Oklahoma State has placed six offensive linemen on the All-Big 12 first team squad, with Russell Okung earning unanimous All-America honors in 2009 and Levy Adcock securing consensus All-America recognition in 2011. Okung was the only offensive lineman included on the list of three finalists for the 2009 Outland Trophy. • Oklahoma State’s individual offensive players have benefitted enormously from Wickline’s corps in recent seasons, with seven offensive players earning All-America honors from recognized outlets and 14 securing All-Big 12 first-team accolades since 2008 alone. • Wickline’s offensive line has paved the way for a 1,000-yard rusher each of the past four seasons, a 1,000-yard receiver in five of the past six seasons and a 3,000-yard passer in three of the past four seasons. • Wickline helped coach the Cowboys to top 10 national rankings in total offense in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011. OSU averaged at least 40 points per game in each of those four seasons. • With Wickline overseeing the offensive line, the Cowboys led the Big 12 in rushing every year from 2006-09 and have ranked in the top 20 nationally in fewest sacks allowed every year from 2006-11. • With Wickline’s linemen paving the way, Oklahoma State led the Big 12 and ranked second nationally in both scoring offense and passing offense in 2011. The Cowboys ranked third in the country in total offense. OSU scored more than 50 points six times and broke the 60-point mark in three contests. • Wickline’s work in 2010 was spectacular, as he took an offensive line that was replacing four starters and turned it into a group that paved the way for an Oklahoma State attack that ranked second nationally in passing offense with 345.8 yards per game, third nationally in total offense with 520.2 yards per game and third nationally in scoring with 44.2 points per game. • With Wickline’s offensive line leading the way, Oklahoma State had at least one running back rush for 100 yards or more in 15 consecutive games during one stretch of time spanning from the 2007 season through the 2008 season. • In 2008, Wickline’s charges helped running back Kendall Hunter to earn first-team All-America honors by the Football Writers Association of America and wide receiver Dez Bryant to earn first-team All-America honors by the Walter Camp Foundation and the American Football Coaches Association. • Wickline helped Charlie Johnson make a successful transition to the tackle spot from tight end. Johnson became the first OSU offensive lineman selected in the NFL Draft since 1985 when Indianapolis took him in 2006. He went on to a solid rookie season and played a pivotal role in the Colts’ Super Bowl win over Chicago. • The 2006 offensive line helped the Cowboys average more than 35 points per game and for the first time ever, the Cowboys had four players rush for at least 500 yards. • At Ole Miss (1988-1994), Wickline coached All-American Everett Lindsay, who went on to a long career with the Minnesota Vikings. At Florida, he coached five All-Americans, 2011 BIG 12 CHAMPIONS | fIESTA bOWL cHAMPIONS

BILL

YOUNG DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR/DEFENSIVE LINE FOURTH YEAR | OKLAHOMA STATE, 1968

Coaching Career • OSU graduate Bill Young returned to Stillwater to join Mike Gundy’s staff as defensive coordinator in January of 2009. Young, who has a long history of success at the highest levels of football, came to OSU after spending the 2008 season as the defensive coordinator at the University of Miami (Fla.). • The Cowboys have compiled a 20-5 record in Big 12 play since 2009, when Young took over as defensive coordinator. That mark is the best of all Big 12 teams during that span. OSU won a share of the Big 12 South title in 2010 and won the Big 12 outright in 2011. The Cowboys appeared in - and won - their first-ever BCS bowl game in 2011 with a victory over Stanford in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. • With Young coordinating, the Oklahoma State defense has been the nation’s most opportunistic over the past two years, as the Cowboys have forced an NCAA-best 78 turnovers the past two seasons. OSU led the nation with 44 turnovers forced in 2011 and was fifth with 34 in 2010. • Oklahoma State led the nation in turnover margin and fumbles recovered and ranked second in the nation in passes intercepted in 2011. OSU led the Big 12 in scoring defense in conference games and was 12th nationally in red zone defense. • The 2011 Oklahoma State defense led the league with three first-team All-Big 12 selections in defensive end Jamie Blatnick, cornerback Brodrick Brown and safety Markelle Martin. It was the first time OSU had three first-team All-Big 12 defensive players since. 1997. Martin was named a first-team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association and both he and Brown were semifinalists for the Thorpe Award given to the nation’s top defensive back. • Young coordinated an OSU defense that spawned linebacker Orie Lemon and cornerback Andrew McGee to first-team all-Big 12 honors in 2010. He has coached six All-Big 12 first-team defenders since 2009. • He was instrumental in one of the most impressive defensive turnarounds in the NCAA in 2009. The Cowboys ranked fourth in the Big 12 and 31st nationally in total defense, allowing 332.54 yards per game. OSU’s rushing defense allowed just 95.7 yards per outing, a total which ranked fourth in the league and 11th nationally. That mark broke the existing school record of 99.2 yards per game set in 1983. The year prior to Young’s arrival, OSU was No. 93 in total defense. • Adding to OSU’s 2009 defensive improvement, the Cowboys racked up 29 sacks after recording just 15 all of the 2008 season. OSU also had 18 interceptions compared to only 12 in ’08. • Prior to his year at Miami, Young was part of the major turnaround at Kansas, where he coached from 2002 through 2007. His 2007 Jayhawks finished the year No. 12 nationally in total defense and fourth in scoring defense as KU won the Orange Bowl. It was the highest national ranking for a KU defense in 39 years. His 2005 Kansas squad led the Big 12 in rushing defense. • Young spent three years coaching the defensive line at Arizona State before three straight stints as a defensive coordinator (Ohio State, Oklahoma and USC). After a season as the defensive line coach of the Detroit Lions, Young returned to the college game and spent 2002 through 2007 as the defensive coordinator at Kansas, prior to joining the Hurricanes. • Young’s collegiate coaching stops have included OSU, where he coached the offensive and defensive lines from 1976 through 1978. He also spent a year at Iowa State before joining the staff at Tulsa, where he coached from 1980-84, serving as defensive coordinator from 1983-84. He then made the move with TU head coach John Cooper to Arizona State.

22

• Young’s accomplishments are many. He has been part of 19 bowl teams. While at USC, Young’s Trojan defenders led the Pac-10 in total defense and were second nationally in takeaways. • His longest coaching tenure came at Ohio State, where he was the Buckeyes’ defensive coordinator and defensive line coach from 1988 through 1995.

Playing Career

• Bill Young was an outside linebacker and defensive end at Oklahoma State. He was a three-year starter and an academic all-Big Eight honoree. He received OSU’s outstanding football award in 1967, when he was also named honorable mention all-conference. He was named an alternate to the Oklahoma high school all-state team after his senior season at Oklahoma City Grant.

Personal

• Young was born in Hereford, Texas, but attended Grant High School in Oklahoma City. He earned a bachelor’s degree in education at OSU in 1968 and a master’s degree in education at Central Oklahoma in 1971. He spent six years in the Oklahoma high school ranks at Carl Albert and Putnam City West before returning to OSU as a graduate assistant coach. His wife, Lawana, is also a native Oklahoman and a graduate of Northeastern State in Tahlequah.

2011 SEASON REVIEW

BEST SEASON IN OSU HISTORY There’s never been a season like 2011 at Oklahoma State. A 12-1 record, the school’s first Big 12 championship, a 44-10 victory over Bedlam Series rival Oklahoma and a win in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl were the highlights of a season in which the Cowboys were a legitimate national championship contender. OSU finished third in the final polls and was 0.0086 points away in the final BCS standings from playing in the BCS national championship game – representing the narrowest margin in BCS history by which a team was left out of the title game. The Cowboys notched a school-record five wins over ranked opponents, highlighted by a 41-38 overtime triumph over No. 4 Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl, a come-from-behind 30-29 win at No. 8 Texas A&M and the 44-10 trashing of No. 13 Oklahoma, but a shocking loss at unranked Iowa State late in the season is what kept the Cowboys out of a spot in the BCS championship game. 58

Perhaps the biggest question mark entering the season was how new offensive coordinator Todd Monken would fare guiding the already-potent Oklahoma State offense that shredded defenses in 2010 and returned almost all of its key players.

Head coach Mike Gundy was recognized as the national coach of the year by winning the Eddie Robinson Award given by the Football Writers Association of America and the Paul “Bear” Bryant College Coach of the Year award in addition to being tabbed as the nation’s top coach by American Football Monthly Magazine. For the second straight season, Justin Blackmon earned the Biletnikoff Award presented to the nation’s best wide receiver and he headlined a crop of six OSU players to secure All-America honors and 12 Cowboys to earn All-Big 12 recognition. Fans came out at a record-setting level to watch perhaps the nation’s most exciting team, as OSU set a school record by selling 48,714 season tickets in 60,000-seat Boone Pickens Stadium. The 2011 Cowboys were ranked among the nation’s elite in several statistical categories, but were primarily known for having a nearly-unstoppable offense. OSU ranked second nationally in both scoring offense and passing offense and were third in total offense.

Monken came to Stillwater after spending the previous four seasons as receivers coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He hadn’t been in the college game since spending the 2005-06 seasons at LSU. He had no prior experience as a play caller. Monken silenced the doubters as the 2011 Pokes set new single-season records for points scored, touchdowns scored, first downs, pass attempts, pass completions, passing yards, completion percentage, touchdown passes, total offense, yards per play and successful third-down conversions with Monken calling the plays. Led by Monken’s orchestration in the booth and quarterback Brandon Weeden’s mastery on the field, the Cowboys of 2011 registered six of the top seven single-game passing marks in school history.

2011 IN REVIEW

2012 OKLAHOMA STATE spring guide

2011 SEASON REVIEW Weeden and Blackmon gained notoriety as the nation’s most feared pass-catch combination, and while the attention they received was all justified, there were several other key components that propelled the Oklahoma State offense to unprecedented heights in 2011.

Joseph Randle had 24 rushing touchdowns and ranked among the national scoring leaders.

The offensive line boasted a pair of All-Americans in center Grant Garner and Levy Adcock and ranked among the national leaders in fewest sacks allowed. Led by a pair of sophomore running backs in Joseph Randle and Jeremy Smith, the Cowboys averaged a very productive 5.3 yards per rush and put a great deal of stress on opposing defensive coordinators by forcing them to either choose between trying to slow one of the nation’s elite passing attacks at the expense of being gouged by a more-than-capable running attack or trying to stop the run game at the expense of being torched by a devastating passing game. The decisions didn’t get any easier for opposing defenses near the goal line, either. The Weeden-to-Blackmon connection in the back corner of the end zone was a near-automatic six points and commanded the utmost respect from opposing teams, but at the same time, Randle ranked fourth in the nation with 24 rushing touchdowns – a total that was higher than 79 teams registered in 2011. Opponents were forced to pick their poison because OSU could get in the end zone with consistency no matter what the other team attempted to take away. While the OSU offense overwhelmed foe after foe, the most difficult storyline for outsiders to reconcile was the Cowboy defense. Out of 120 teams in the nation, Oklahoma State ranked 107th in total defense. Contrary to the pre-existing notion of what winning football looks like, the Pokes were 90th nationally against the run and 107th against the pass, yet still won games by an average margin of 22 points per game. So how did they do it? By forcing turnovers and stuffing teams in the red zone. While critics called attention to the substantial yardage, first down totals and time of possession numbers put up against the Cowboy defense, what they should have focused on is the fact that OSU led the Big 12 in scoring defense in conference games, led the nation in turnovers forced, led the Big 12 and ranked 12th nationally in red zone defense and were second in the Big 12 and 20th nationally in pass efficiency defense. OSU led the nation in turnovers forced and turnover margin.

Often times, the Cowboy defense was a victim of the Cowboy offense’s success and its quick-strike nature. The Oklahoma State offense led the nation with 48 scoring drives that took less than two minutes off the clock. Of those 48 drives, 21 took less than one minute off the clock. OSU had 40 offensive scoring drives of five plays or less. All of that resulted in the defense not getting enough rest while the offense lit up the stadium scoreboard each week. A typical Oklahoma State game in 2011 looked like this: the Cowboys roar out to an insurmountable lead, then allow significant amounts of points and yardage in the second half when the games were already well out of reach, thus inflating opponents’ stats and making the OSU defense look worse than it really was. The examples were many. OSU led Louisiana, 31-3 and won the game 61-34. OSU led Tulsa, 45-6 and won the game, 59-33. OSU led Kansas, 56-7 at the half and won the game, 70-28. OSU led Baylor, 42-0 and won the game 59-24. While steamrolling opponents was the norm for Oklahoma State in 2011, the final highlight of the season came when Quinn Sharp kicked a field goal in overtime to push the Cowboys to a thrilling 41-38 overtime win over No. 4 Stanford at the Fiesta Bowl. A game-winning field goal and hero’s exit was appropriate for Sharp, who could easily make an argument for being the best special teams player in the country in 2011. Sharp handled all the kickoffs, placements and punting for OSU and excelled in each facet of the game. For the third straight season, he led the nation in touchbacks on kickoffs with 61 - an overwhelming 21 touchbacks more than the second-place kicker. He also led the nation in kicker scoring and was third in punting average. For his efforts, Sharp was named Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year and was the first-team All-America kicker by the Football Writers Association of America. After being the FWAA’s first-team All-America punter the previous season, Sharp became only the third player in the FWAA All-America team’s 68year history to earn first-team All-America honors at two different positions. The unique success of Sharp on special teams meshed with a thrilling offense and opportunistic defense made 2011 stand alone as the greatest season in Oklahoma State history.

STILLWATER, Okla. - Perhaps the biggest storyline of the 2011 preseason at Oklahoma State was the transition from departed offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen to new playcaller Todd Monken. If the Cowboys’ 61-34 win over Louisiana is an indication, the transition should be relatively painless. The Pokes racked up 666 yards of total offense - 458 of which came through the air - in their convincing win. The OSU defense was far more impressive than the final stat line would indicate, as the Cowboy starters didn’t allow an offensive touchdown to the Ragin’ Cajuns and through three quarters, the OSU defense yielded only 173 yards of offense and forced two Cajun turnovers before turning over the reins to the second team. Additionally, the Cowboys limited Louisiana tight end Ladarius Green - who is regarded among the best in the nation at his position - to only one catch for negative-one yard on the day.

STILLWATER, Okla. - In front of an ESPN Thursday-night primetime national audience, ninthranked Oklahoma State jumped out to a 21-0 lead after three possessions and never looked back during its 37-14 win over Arizona. Quarterback Brandon Weeden completed each of his first 13 passes and the Cowboy defense surrendered only 36 yards in the first quarter to set the tone for a game that was never in doubt. Sophomore running back Joseph Randle carried the ball 15 times for 121 yards and two touchdowns and added nine receptions for 99 yards. Receiver Justin Blackmon added 12 catches for 128 yards and two touchdowns and Weeden set school records with 42 completions on 53 attempts. Entering the game, Arizona quarterback Nick Foles led the nation in passing, but the Cowboy defense kept the Wildcats off the scoreboard until their eighth possession of the game. OSU’s starting safeties - Markelle Martin and Daytawion Lowe - teamed up to register 14 tackles, a forced fumble and two pass breakups. Oklahoma State repeatedly stuffed the Wildcat run, holding running back Keola Antolin to only 22 yards on 13 rushes (1.7 yards per carry). The Cowboys held a 34-7 fourth-quarter lead after running back Jeremy Smith’s six-yard touchdown run, but after Arizona answered with a 54-yard Foles-to-Dan Buckner touchdown, the Pokes delivered the final dagger with a 15-play, seven-minute-long scoring drive that covered 78 yards and resulted in a Quinn Sharp field goal.

Sept. 18, 2011 H.A. Chapman Stadium Att: 24,563 TV: FSN

TULSA, Okla. - In a game that didn’t kick off until 12:15 a.m. local time due to lightning delays, Oklahoma State roared out to a 45-6 lead before finishing a 59-33 victory over Tulsa in the Golden Hurricane’s H.A. Chapman Stadium. The game finished at 3:36 a.m. The Tulsa defense sold out to stopping returning Biletnikoff Award-winner Justin Blackmon and the result was a balanced Cowboy offense attack that featured 128 yards rushing with three touchdowns from running back Joseph Randle, three different OSU receivers with at least 70 yards receiving and six different OSU receivers with a catch of 24 yards or longer. With the Golden Hurricane desperate to stop him, Blackmon still finished with seven catches for 57 yards and a touchdown. His NCAA-record streak of 14 consecutive games with at least 100 yards receiving came to an end. The Cowboy defense forced a season-high six turnovers in the game and cornerback Justin Gilbert returned a kickoff for a 96-yard touchdown. Linebacker James Thomas had an interception, a forced fumble, a recovered fumble, a sack and two tackles for loss.

Sept. 24, 2011 Kyle Field Att: 87,358 TV: ABC Sports

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - In a clash of top-10 teams jockeying for a claim of the inside track to a Big 12 title, it was seventh-ranked Oklahoma State that showed the gumption to erase a 20-3 halftime deficit to defeat No. 8 Texas A&M, 30-29, in front of a raucous crowd of 87,358 at Kyle Field. The Aggies rolled up 301 yards of offense and stifled the Cowboys by limiting them to 2-of-7 on third-down conversions in the first half, but the tone of the game flipped entirely after halftime, as the Pokes rattled off 27 unanswered points to open up a 30-20 lead in the fourth quarter. Fueling the OSU comeback was quarterback Brandon Weeden, who set school records with 47 completions in 60 attempts for 438 yards. Weeden shredded the Aggie defense with short and intermediate passes to a variety of receivers in the second half. Josh Cooper (11 catches for 123 yards), Justin Blackmon (11 catches for 121 yards and a touchdown) and Hubert Anyiam (10 catches for 92 yards) became the first set of OSU teammates to log 10 catches in the same game. OSU’s defense also loomed large in the second half, forcing three turnovers in the third quarter alone to set the table for the Cowboy offense to work with favorable field position. With OSU leading, 30-27, and the Aggies driving with under two minutes remaining, OSU cornerback Brodrick Brown stormed in and broke up a pass, deflecting it into the waiting arms of linebacker James Thomas to slam the door on Texas A&M’s comeback hopes.

Oct. 8, 2011 Boone Pickens Stadium Att: 58,030 TV: None

STILLWATER, Okla. - In a record-setting day at Boone Pickens Stadium, Oklahoma State logged a 70-28 win over Kansas. The Cowboys led, 35-7 after the first quarter and 56-7 at halftime and pulled their starters for the day with five minutes remaining in the first half. Eight different OSU players scored touchdowns in the game and quarterback Brandon Weeden packed a game’s worth of stats into just one quarter. His line after the first 15 minutes was 16-of-18 passing for 223 yards and four touchdowns. He finished 24-of-28 for 288 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions to set a school record for completion percentage (min. 20 attempts). The Cowboy defense forced four turnovers in the first half and the OSU offense turned all four of those turnovers into touchdowns to put the game well out of reach. Oklahoma State’s scoring explosion tied numerous single-game school records, including most points in the modern era (70, set against Southern Illinois, 1973), most touchdowns (10, vs. Southern Illinois, 1973), most points in a half (56, vs. Southern Illinois, 1973), and most points in a quarter (35, vs. Southern Illinois, 1973, and vs. Baylor, 2002).

Oct. 15, 2011 DKR Texas Memorial Stadium Att: 100,101 TV: ABC Sports

AUSTIN, Texas - Oklahoma State became the first team to beat Texas in Austin two years in a row since 1911 when the Cowboys scored a 38-26 win at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium. The Cowboys utilized a balanced offensive attack, a stout defensive performance and a kickoff return touchdown from the special teams unit to stifle the homestanding Longhorns. The 26 points scored by Texas isn’t the best indicator of how well the Cowboy defense played in the contest, because 16 of UT’s points were scored with the Longhorn offense only needing to move the ball a total of 15 yards against the Pokes defense, as OSU allowed a kickoff return for a touchdown, the offense took a safety and the Longhorns punched in a touchdown on a 15-yard scoring drive after the Cowboy punt unit turned the ball over deep in OSU territory. The Cowboy defensive unit racked up a staggering 13 tackles for loss and forced three turnovers in the game, with defensive end Jamie Blatnick leading the way with nine tackles, two sacks, four tackles for loss, a pass break-up and a quarterback hurry. Running back Jeremy Smith enjoyed a career day with seven carries for 140 yards, highlighted by a 30-yard touchdown scamper on a key fourth-down play just before halftime and a 74-yard dash that put the game out of reach late in the third quarter. Sophomore Justin Gilbert struck for his second kickoff return touchdown of the season and the fourth of his career when he fielded a kickoff five yards deep in his own end zone and outran the Texas cover team the length of the field for a score to open the second half.

2011 BOX SCORES AND RECAPS No. 6/6 Oklahoma State 45 Missouri 24

Oct. 22, 2011 Faurot Field Att: 64,202 TV: FX

COLUMBIA, Mo. - Despite playing the entire second half without star receivers Justin Blackmon and Hubert Anyiam and the fact that Oklahoma State played the entire game with one of its defensive leaders in Cooper Bassett, the sixth-ranked Cowboys went on the road to claim a 45-24 win at Missouri. Quarterback Brandon Weeden diced the Tiger defense through the air, going 33-for-49 for 338 yards and three touchdowns and running back Joseph Randle scored four touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving) to highlight a day in which he racked up a career-high 138 yards on the ground. As has been the case all season, the OSU defense forced turnovers at a hearty pace, racking up three interceptions and recovering a fumble. Three of those four turnovers led to Cowboy touchdowns on the ensuing offensive possession. Oklahoma State threatened to put the game out of reach in the first half by jumping out to a 21-3 lead, but Missouri rallied back to trim the Cowboys’ advantage to 24-17 in the second quarter. With Blackmon (head) and Anyiam (foot) both out for the remainder of the contest, it seemed as if the table was set for a Missouri come-from-behind victory. However, the Pokes turned to the running game in the second half and the Cowboy defense allowed only seven points to a Tiger squad that appeared to have all the momentum.

STILLWATER, Okla. - In a game that pitted two of the top three offenses in the nation going in, it was Oklahoma State’s defense that put on a show. The Cowboys led Baylor, 42-0, in the third quarter before the high-powered Bears finally mustered a field goal to get on the board with the game already well out of reach. The teams traded scores down the stretch to round out a 59-24 OSU victory in front of a Homecoming crowd of 58,274 - the second-largest crowd in Boone Pickens Stadium history. Led by sophomore running back Joseph Randle’s second-straight four-touchdown game, Oklahoma State rushed for a season-high 327 yards in the contest. Randle carried the ball 14 times for 152 yards and four scores. True freshman teammate Herschel Sims carried eight times for 104 yards, highlighted by an 81-yard touchdown scamper and Jeremy Smith added three carries for 77 yards. All-America wide receiver Justin Blackmon posted season highs with 13 catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns, but the Cowboy defense’s ability to force the Bears into committing five turnovers was the biggest key of the game. OSU cornerback Justin Gilbert and safety Daytawion Lowe both recorded interceptions and cornerbacks Brodrick Brown and Andrae May both added to Baylor’s demise with Brown recovering two fumbles and May scooping up one.

STILLWATER, Okla. - Oklahoma State erased a 10-point second-quarter deficit and made plays down the stretch to hold off No. 17 Kansas State, 52-45 in a game that featured 28 points scored in the last five minutes and 16 seconds of the fourth quarter alone. Despite playing without three of his favorite targets in injured receivers Josh Cooper, Hubert Anyiam and Michael Harrison, Cowboy quarterback Brandon Weeden set a school record by passing for 502 yards in the win. Weeden completed 36-of-46 passes (.782 pct.) with four touchdown strikes in the game. He was at his best when the team needed him most, engineering three crucial scoring drives in the decisive fourth quarter by completing six-of-eight passes for 111 yards and a touchdown in the final stanza. All-American Justin Blackmon turned in his best game of the season by making 13 catches for 205 yards and a touchdown and fellow receiver Tracy Moore enjoyed a career night with nine catches for 146 yards and a touchdown. Still, the game was tied at 45 with 3:18 left after K-State quarterback Collin Klein (22-of38 passing for 231 yards and 29 carries for 144 yards) rushed for his third touchdown of the game. Needing a score to win, OSU marched 65 yards in 1:02 and reclaimed the lead for good after Joseph Randle danced in for a 23-yard touchdown with 2:16 left.

Nov. 12, 2011 Jones AT&T Stadium Att: 57,205 TV: ABC Sports

LUBBOCK, Texas - The Oklahoma State defense pitched a shutout against the nation’s No. 11 offense and the Cowboy offense steamrolled its way through the Texas Tech defense en route to a 66-6 victory over the Red Raiders in Jones AT&T Stadium. It was the most lopsided defeat that Texas Tech has ever been subjected to. The Cowboys held a 35-0 lead before the Red Raiders - ranked sixth in the nation in passing offense going in - even crossed midfield. OSU never allowed Texas Tech into the red zone, as the farthest the Red Raiders could penetrate was to the Cowboy 21-yard line. Meanwhile, the Cowboy offense had its way with Texas Tech all game long, with quarterback Brandon Weeden completing 31-of-37 passes for 423 yards and five touchdowns with no interceptions before being taken out of the game in the third quarter. Making Weeden’s performance even more impressive is the fact that winds gusting to 40 miles per hour persisted throughout the game. After most of the last two games with an injury, receiver Josh Cooper returned to make six catches for 106 yards in the first half. Fellow receivers Justin Blackmon (six catches for 103 yards and two touchdowns) and Josh Stewart (two catches for 93 yards and two touchdowns) were also key figures in the passing attack, with running back Joseph Randle tacking on three rushing touchdowns. OSU’s win completed the second consecutive sweep of the Big 12’s Texas schools for Oklahoma State. The Cowboys have beaten Texas A&M, Texas, Baylor and Texas Tech in each of the past two seasons.

Ames, Iowa. - With its vaunted offense strangely out of sync from the start and its defense unable to get off the field, second-ranked Oklahoma State suffered a 37-31 loss in double overtime to unranked Iowa State. Perhaps still in a haze from the news they received earlier in the day of a plane crash that killed OSU women’s basketball head coach Kurt Budke, assistant coach Miranda Serna, pilot Olin Branstetter and his wife, Paula, the Cowboys never looked like themselves against the Cyclones despite the fact that the Pokes racked up 536 yards of offense and quarterback Brandon Weeden passed for 476 yards and three touchdowns. OSU entered the game leading the nation in turnover margin, but committed five turnovers in the contest, and that doesn’t include another possession lost when Iowa State recovered an onside kick in the third quarter. Additionally, the Cowboys turned the ball over on downs in the second quarter and went three-and-out on three drives in the game. Oklahoma State’s usually-effective rushing attack was smothered by an Iowa State unit that entered the contest ranked 104th nationally in rush defense. The Cowboy defense, which had pitched a shutout the previous week at Texas Tech, surrendered 568 yards of offense and 33 first downs to an Iowa State squad that entered the game averaging 393 yards and 20 first downs per game. Still, the Cowboys held a 24-7 lead early in the third quarter and had a chance to take a three-point lead with 1:17 remaining in the fourth quarter, but kicker Quinn Sharp - one of the best in America - pushed a 37-yard attempt just inches to the right to set up an overtime period that was controlled by the homestanding Cyclones.

Dec. 3, 2011 Boone Pickens Stadium Att: 58,141 TV: ABC Sports

STILLWATER, Okla. - The day that Oklahoma State had been waiting for presented itself and the Cowboys took full advantage by throttling No. 13 Oklahoma, 44-10, to clinch their firstever outright Big 12 conference championship and BCS-bowl appearance. The Pokes held a 24-0 lead late in the second quarter that ballooned to a 44-3 advantage before the Sooners scored a meaningless touchdown with 2:25 remaining in the game. The Cowboy defense was the aggressor and disrupted Sooner quarterback Landry Jones all game long, sacking the OU signal-caller three times, picking him off twice and forcing him into two lost fumbles. Jones finished 27-of-50 for 250 yards with no touchdowns. Linebacker Alex Elkins forced a second-quarter fumble by Jones that was recovered by defensive end Jamie Blatnick and returned 59 yards to the Sooner one-yard line, then punched in for a score by running back Joseph Randle on the very next play. Later in the third quarter, defensive end Richetti Jones picked up a second Jones fumble and rumbled in five yards for a touchdown. Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden didn’t put up his most spectacular numbers of the year in the contest, thanks largely to the fact that he only had to throw the ball one time in the fourth quarter because the Cowboy running game was dominant. Joseph Randle carried 19 times for 51 yards and two touchdowns and Jeremy Smith went for 119 yards on 10 carries with two scores of his own.

Jan. 2, 2012 Univ. of Phoenix Stadium Att: 69,927 TV: ESPN

Glendale, Ariz. - In a thrilling end to the 2011 season, No. 3 Oklahoma State was a 41-38 overtime winner over No. 4 Stanford in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The Cowboys never led in the game until the deciding 22-yard field goal from Quinn Sharp split the uprights in overtime, but they continually answered scoring drives from the potent Cardinal offense headlined by a two-time Heisman runner-up in quarterback Andrew Luck to stay within striking range. Receiver Justin Blackmon earned offensive MVP honors after making nine catches for 186 yards and a Fiesta Bowl-record three touchdown receptions. Perhaps his most important catch of the game was not a touchdown, but rather a 21-yard catch on fourth and three late in the game that set up the game-tying touchdown run by Joseph Randle that sent the game into overtime. The Pokes held Stanford off the scoreboard on its final possession of regulation when Cardinal kicker Jordan Williamson hooked a 35-yard field goal attempt wide left with no time on the clock. Williamson missed from 43 yards out in overtime to set up OSU’s winning drive. Cowboy quarterback Brandon Weeden connected with one-time walk-on Colton Chelf for a 24-yard reception on the second play of OSU’s overtime possession and when the officials signaled a touchdown, the Cowboy bench erupted with a mass of bodies spilling onto the field. The call was eventually reversed, sending everyone back to the sideline. Weeden then took a knee in the middle of the field to set up Sharp’s game winner.
