The home teams continued to have trouble winning in Big 12 games last weekend, with three more teams going down to defeat at home. This comes a week after all four conference games were won by the road teams.

 In 23 conference games through Week 9 of the 2011 college football season, excluding the Oklahoma-Texas Red River Rivalry game played in Dallas, the road team has won 14 times. No Big 12 team lost at home in the nonconference portion of the schedule.

Not many of the conference games have been close affairs, either. The average score of the 24 games played is 45.9 to 23.7.

Four Big 12 teams remain in the top 25 national rankings. This week's BCS standings have Oklahoma State No. 3; Oklahoma, 6; Kansas State dropped to 14, and Texas checks in at 21.

Other noteworthy numbers from the weekend's Big 12 games:

1 - The maligned Oklahoma State defense leads the nation in turnover margin (2.38 per game) and interceptions (17).

2 - Oklahoma ranks second nationally in total offense, averaging 563 yards per game.

3 - Total number of first downs for the game by Kansas vs. Texas on Saturday. That is the fewest in a game by the Jayhawks since before 1968.

5 - Number of Big 12 teams in the top 14 in the country in scoring offense: Oklahoma State (2), Oklahoma (5), Baylor (9), Texas A&M (T-12) and Texas Tech (14).

10 - Consecutive games Baylor has lost to Oklahoma State in Stillwater. The Bears have not won at OSU since 1909.

14 - Missouri's overtime win over Texas A&M last weekend was the 14th by the Tigers in school history, the most of any FBS team.

26 - Rushing attempts by Kansas State QB Collin Klein against Oklahoma, a career high. Klein gained 92 yards and scored two rushing touchdowns, one a 42-yard TD run..

27 - Number of consecutive weeks in which Oklahoma State has appeared in the BCS top 25 standings. That ranks second among FBS teams.

89 - Number of all-time appearances in the BCS weekly standings by Texas, the best in the nation. Oklahoma is fourth with 80.

152 - Rushing yards for Joseph Randle of Oklahoma State against Baylor, a career high. Randle also scored four touchdowns in the game.

505 - Passing yardage for Oklahoma's Landry Jones Saturday vs. Kansas State, an OU single-game school record.

6,000 - Career all-purpose yardage by Cyrus Gray of Texas A&M, making him only the fourth player in Big 12 history to achieve that mark. He joins Darren Sproles (Kansas State), DeMarco Murray (Oklahoma) and Cedric Benson (Texas).
