Cowboys pile up points

Sunday, October 09, 2011


While Oklahoma State put up a performance that required a look back to find out when it last scored so many points, Wake Forest added a winning note to its ACC history. Those two tidbits and others highlight this week's By The Numbers:


70: Points scored by Oklahoma State in its 70-28 win over Kansas.

1: Number of times the Cowboys previously scored as many points as 70 points in a game since 1916; 70-7 over Southern Illinois in 1973.

49.4: Points per game allowed by Kansas this season, which is easily 120th and last in the FBS.

60.3: Points per game allowed by Kansas in the last three games.

4: Touchdown passes thrown by Alabama’s A.J. McCarron in a 34-0 win over Vanderbilt.

3: Touchdown passes allowed by the Vandy defense going into the game.

3: Conference wins in as many games by Wake Forest. This season marks the only time in the Demon Deacons’ 59-season history as an ACC member that they won their first three conference games.

22: Takeaways by Rutgers to lead the nation for an average of 4.4 per game.

22: Takeaways by Rutgers all last season.
