Junior Ryan Bustin set the Texas Tech school record for field goals in a single season when he booted a 32-yarder with 1:33 to go in the first half. That field goal gave him 18 for the season which breaks the record that he tied last season. He picked up his 19th field goal (26 yards) of the year early in the fourth quarter.

Eric Ward scored the first touchdown of the game for the Red Raiders when he hauled in a 38-yard touchdown reception with 14:49 remaining in the second quarter. It was his sixth touchdown catch of the season.
Pete Robertson's 21-yard interception return for touchdown was the first by a Red Raider since Cody Davis had an 88-yard INT return last year at Texas State. The INT return cut the Oklahoma State lead to 28-17 with 5:17 to go in the first half.
Jace Amaro now has four-straight 100-yard receiving games and that is the most by a Red Raider since 2007 when Michael Crabtree had seven. He finsihed the night with a career high 15 catches and 174 yards. His 10 catches in the first half were the most by a Red Raider since Eric Ward tallied 11 in the first half against Baylor in 2011.
Kenny Williams two-yard touchdown run with two minutes remaining in the half cut the Oklahoma State lead to 28-24. Williams now has at least one touchdown run in five straight games which is the most by a Tech running back since Eric Stephens.
Keenon Ward picked up his first career interception midway through the third quarter.
• Amaro caught his first touchdown of the game with 4:31 remaining in the third quarter - a one-yard touchdown strike from Davis Webb.

Ryan Bustin's 32-yard field goal with 1:33 to go in the first quarter extended Texas Tech's school record consecutive game scoring streak to 203 games. Of those 203 games, the Red Raiders have scored in double-digits 191 times.
• Texas Tech got its first blocked punt since the 2010 season late in the first quarter when Kerry Hyder got his hands on ball punted by Kip Smith. Jonathan Brydon was the last Red Raider to get a blocked punt when he did so at New Mexico in 2010.
• The touchdown catch by Eric Ward early in the second snapped a seven quarter drought by the Red Raider offense against Oklahoma State here at Jones AT&T Stadium.
