ABOUT THE GAME
*Defending Big 12 champion and No. 3 TCU travels to Oklahoma State.
*Dating back to last season, TCU’s school record 16-game winning streak ranks second nationally behind Ohio State (21). The Horned Frogs are 20-1 over the last two seasons.
*The Horned Frogs have a 12-game winning streak in Big 12 games, including six in a row on the road.
*TCU is 38-3 as a top-10 team under head coach Gary Patterson, including 27-1 when in the Associated Press or USA Today Top 5.
*Since 2000, TCU’s 25-1 record (.962) as an AP Top 5 team is the best mark nationally. The Horned Frogs have a 22-game winning streak as an AP Top 5 squad.
*TCU is 8-0 for the third time in the last seven years and fourth time overall in 15 seasons under Patterson.
*TCU is playing in Stillwater for the third time in four seasons. Upon entering the Big 12 in 2012, TCU inherited Texas A&M’s league schedule in which the Aggies owed the Cowboys an extra home game. TCU played at Oklahoma State in 2012 and 2013, before hosting the Cowboys last year.
*TCU head coach Gary Patterson is 19-15 against ranked opponents, including a four-game winning streak that began with last season’s 42-9 victory over Oklahoma State.
*The game features the all-time winningest coaches at both schools. Patterson has 140 victories at TCU, while Mike Gundy has 92 for OSU.
*TCU is 11-6 on the road in its Big 12 history.
*Four of TCU’s last six Big 12 road games have been decided by seven points or less. The Horned Frogs are 4-0 in those games.
*TCU is tied for sixth nationally in most road wins (6) over Associated Press Top-25 teams since 2009.
*TCU has the nation’s third-best road record (29-7, .806) since 2009.
*Oklahoma State holds a 13-10-2 edge in the all-time series with TCU.
*TCU is 3-7 versus OSU in Stillwater, 6-4-2 in Fort Worth, 1-1 in a pair of meetings (1943, 1946) in Oklahoma City and 0-1 in Dallas (1945 Cotton Bowl).
*TCU’s 42-9 victory last season was its first win over Oklahoma State since a 13-11 decision in 1992, the last time the teams previously met in Fort Worth.
*Three members of TCU’s coaching staff wore an Oklahoma State uniform during their collegiate playing days.
*TCU co-offensive coordinator and inside receivers coach Doug Meacham was a three-year starter on the Cowboys’ offensive line (1985-87).
*Meacham earned All-Big Eight honors and was a team captain and honorable mention All-American as a senior. Meacham blocked for 1988 Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders and two-time Big Eight Player of the Year Thurman Thomas.
*TCU safeties coach Chad Glasgow was a three-year letterman (1991-93) at linebacker for Oklahoma State. He was also a graduate assistant (1994-95) under former head coach Bob Simmons.
*TCU running backs coach Curtis Luper played at Oklahoma State (1984-87) before returning to Stillwater as a Cowboys’ assistant coach (2005-08).
*TCU has two players from Oklahoma.
*Left guard Jamelle Naff (Del City) has started all 21 games the last two seasons and 23 in his career.
*Defensive tackle Davion Pierson (Oklahoma City; Millwood High School) is in his fourth year as a starter. His 35 career starts rank second among current Horned Frogs.
*Trevone Boykin ranks second nationally in total offense (431.4 yards per game) and has thrown a TD pass in 23 consecutive games, the nation’s longest streak.
*Josh Doctson has joined Texas Tech’s Michael Crabtree as the only players in the last 20 years to have six straight games with at least 100 yards receiving and multiple touchdown catches.
*Jaden Oberkrom’s TCU record 70 field goals are one shy of the Big 12 mark of 71 (Mason Crosby, Colorado, 2003-06).
*TCU is second in the nation with 30 freshmen (15 true, 15 redshirt) having seen action this season.
