These programs have played each other 48 times with the Red Raiders boasting a narrow 23-22-3 series lead. With that said, it’s been mostly OSU as of late, as the Cowboys have won 10 of the past 12 meetings.
Tech shut out OSU in the teams’ first two meetings (1935 and 1936), winning a combined 26-0. OSU got closer in 1940, tying with Tech at 6 in a game in Oklahoma City.
OSU’s first win in the series came in 1942 in Lubbock, winning 9-6. That started a four game winning streak for OSU in the series.
This series has also gone international, as the teams met in Tokyo, Japan in 1988, shortly after Barry Sanders won the Heisman Trophy. OSU won that game 45-42.
