Oklahoma State has held Texas without pass TD in Austin since 2008

Not only is Oklahoma State the first team to win five straight road games against the Longhorns. The Cowboys have also held the Longhorns without a passing touchdown during the streak.

Oklahoma State has faced five different Texas quarterbacks in Austin, Texas, since Colt McCoy threw a touchdown pass in the teams’ 2008 game. None of them have managed to find the end zone through the air.

Garrett Gilbert, Case McCoy, David Ash, Jerrod Heard and Sam Ehlinger have combined for no touchdown passes and 8 interceptions in the Longhorns’ five straight home losses to the Cowboys. That includes Ramon Richards’ game-sealing interception of Ehlinger in Saturday’s game, a 13-10 Oklahoma State victory.

The Cowboys’ defense has had to carry the load in recent matchups, but it has risen to the occasion. Oklahoma State hasn’t lost in Austin since that 2008 game. Colt McCoy’s touchdown pass came in the second quarter, so the Longhorns haven’t thrown a touchdown pass at home against the Cowboys in 22 quarters.
