Inside the Numbers: Oklahoma State

New, 24 comments

Numbers never lie, so you know there are some good ones coming out of the most complete Big 12 game the Frogs have played.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday everyone! Before we move on to Tech (Tech hate is second only to Baylor hate for me), let's take one last look back at one of the best performances the Frogs have had in Big 12 conference play, on both sides of the ball.

OFFENSE

4(00)-3-2(00)-1(00): For the first time in TCU's storied football history, the Frogs sported a 400 yard passer (Trevone Boykin), a 200 yard receiver (Josh Doctson), and a 100 yard rusher (B.J. Catalon). This is a special three headed monster, like I mentioned yesterday, and combined with a complement of talented skill position players, the sky's the limit for this offense. Boykin is the man that makes the offense move, and he has done so while amassing almost 370 yards per game, good for fourth in the nation.

14: The Frogs have scored the first 14 points of each game this season, and thus opened each game with a double digit lead. Saturday was the first time all year that the Frogs didn't score on their opening drive; but they made up for the "slow" start by scoring three touchdowns in a four play span.

273: The Frog offense scored for the 273rd consecutive game. TCU hasn't been shut out since November 16th, 1991 against Texas, and now sport the second longest active scoring streak in the country and the sixth longest streak all time.

DEFENSE

0: The new length of Oklahoma State's streak of scoring at least 20 points per game, after the Frogs broke their previous streak of 58 games.

1-1-8: The Frog D has posted at least one sack and one interception in eight straight games, the longest such streak in the nation.

2-6-3: Kevin White hauled in his second pick on the season, giving him six in his career, which is good for third all time on the Frog's career interception list.

SPECIAL TEAMS

13: The length of kicker Jaden Oberkrom's new extra point streak, after having his school record streak of 100 broken on a blocked attempt against Oklahoma.

3: The total punt return yards OSU mid-season All American and super freak Tyreek Hill had on Saturday, on five attempts. Ethan Perry's punts weren't pretty, but the directional/knuckleball/nononoyes kicks were effective.

INTERESTING STAT OF THE WEEK

29-11: That's TCU's record after a loss in the Patterson era. Two things stand out to me with that stat; that the Frogs haven't lost much under Coach P, and that they haven't lost consecutive games hardly at all.

33: The 33 point margin of victory was the largest conference margin for TCU in their three years in the Big 12. This stands out because the Frogs have played Kansas twice.

What is your most interesting or exciting stat of the week? And what numbers are you hoping to see on Saturday against Tech (other than a zero for the Raiders on the scoreboard, of course).
