SERIES HISTORY

  • Texas Tech snapped a nine-game losing streak to Oklahoma State a year ago en route to improving to 22-21-3 all-time against the Cowboys in a back-and-forth series that dates all the way back to 1935. The Red Raiders handled the Cowboys to the tune of a 41-17 victory a year ago in Stillwater, marking the first time Tech had topped Oklahoma State away from home since the 2001 season. 
  • The Red Raiders will be searching for their first win versus the Cowboys at home since 2008 as Texas Tech has dropped the last five meetings inside Jones AT&T Stadium. Tech's last win came in 2008 when the then-No. 2 Red Raiders delivered a 56-20 rout of No. 8 Oklahoma State in front of a national audience. 
  • This is the 12th consecutive season and the 18th time overall the Red Raiders have faced a ranked Oklahoma State team. Texas Tech has four victories in its history over a top-25 Oklahoma State program after securing a 27-3 victory in 1997, a 31-15 win in 2004, a 56-20 rout in 2008 and then last year's 41-17 thriller. 
  • The Red Raiders are 10-12 against the Cowboys during the Big 12 era despite winning seven of the first nine meetings after the league formed prior to the 1996 season. 
  • Texas Tech and Oklahoma State have produced several high-scoring shootouts in recent years as the two schools have combined for at least 75 points in six of the past seven meetings. The two schools have combined for 50 or more points in each of the past nine seasons and in 17 of the past 20 contests overall.
