Just 20 days ago, the Oklahoma State Cowboys had lost to Baylor on the road -- leaving fans wondering if OSU would ever win a Big 12 road game. Oh, how things have changed. Oklahoma State rolled over Texas in Austin on Saturday, 72-59, for its second-consecutive Big 12 road win. Here's a quick look at the game:

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy had no previous connection to new Cowboys offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich. Whether on the road or back home in Stillwater, Gundy was researching offensive coordinators and quarterback coaches during the course of the last month. The search was to find an accomplished coordinator that also had a lot of experience working with quarterbacks.
Oklahoma State's last victory over the Texas Longhorns in Austin was in 2004 but the Cowboys broke an eight-game losing skid at the Erwin Center with Saturday afternoon's 72-59 victory. The 22nd-ranked Cowboys won their fifth game in a row to improve to 17-5 overall and 7-3 in conference play.
