Series History (23-23-3)

The overall record between these teams might be dead even, but as of late, it’s been all Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys have won 11 of the past 13 games in this battle of a finger gun hand sign going back to 2009.

In that 2009 game, OSU quarterback Zac Robinson actually ran for more yards (99) than he threw for (90) in a game that Patrick Lavine had a game-icing interception return for a touchdown.

OSU extended its win streak over Tech to nine in 2017, a game OSU won 41-34. Mason Rudolph threw for 376 yards and three touchdowns and had two rushing touchdowns. Justice Hill ran for 164 yards. James Washington had 127 receiving yards. And Marcell Ateman had 114 receiving yards. Lots of standout performances.

Tech’s two most recent wins came in 2018 and 2019. The Red Raiders thumped OSU 41-17 in the first of those games. The 2019 game saw Tech win 45-35 in Spencer Sanders’ first trip to Lubbock, where he had three interceptions.

Then last season, OSU won with its defense, shutting out Tech 23-0. Tech mustered a woeful 108 yards of total offense.

Here is a full look at the past 10 meetings.
