11/24/2011

Time for another collection of fun facts and stats from ESPN Stats and Info and various sports information departments around the Big 12.

  • Oklahoma had allowed six passing touchdowns longer than 30 yards this season before last week's loss to Baylor, during which it allowed three.

  • Before last week, Baylor's last victory over a top-five team came against USC in 1985. The last win over a top-10 team was a win over Arkansas in 1988.

  • Last week, for the second time in five games, Texas quarterback David Ash failed to complete a pass thrown 10 yards or longer downfield, going 0-for-5.

  • Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones recorded the highest single-game completion percentage of his career against Iowa State last season (30-of-34, 88 percent), but threw just six passes longer than 10 yards, completing four.

  • Jones' streak of 24 consecutive games with a touchdown pass ended last week against Baylor, despite throwing for 447 yards.

  • Iowa State was the first team this season to hold Oklahoma State without a rushing touchdown this season. The Cyclones also held OSU 110 yards under its average rushing yards per game.

  • Robert Griffin III's 3,572 passing yards broke his own school record, and he still has three games left to play.
