Oklahoma State can set visiting-team record at Texas with win

Lots will be on the line for No. 10 Oklahoma State on Saturday when the Cowboys face the Texas Longhorns in Austin — including an all-time record for visiting teams at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

A Cowboys win on Saturday would set a new record for most consecutive wins by a single visiting team at the stadium in the facility’s 94-year history.

Oklahoma State has won its last four games played in Austin — doing so in 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2015. The only other Texas opponent to win four straight visits to the DKR was Notre Dame — recording triumphs in 1913, 1915, 1952 and 1996.

It’s not the only win-streak that Oklahoma State carries over Texas entering the contest on Saturday. The Cowboys have been triumphant over the Longhorns in their last two meetings.

If Oklahoma State is to set the all-time record in Austin on Saturday, however, the Cowboys will have to do something that has never been accomplished in program history — defeat Texas for a third consecutive season.

Despite winning five of the last seven meetings between the two, Oklahoma State trails Texas badly in the all-time series. Texas owns a 24-7 edge over the Cowboys.

Kickoff for the Texas-Oklahoma State game is scheduled for 11 a.m. CT on ABC. If the Cowboys can improve to 6-1, it will be a day full of firsts for the team — and ultimately a boost to the team’s resume moving forward.
