    TCU will travel to Stillwater, Okla., Saturday for Oklahoma State’s homecoming game. Here are 15 facts and figures about the game:

    2: TCU coaches that played at Oklahoma State. Safeties coach Chad Glasgow played linebacker for three years (1991-93) and worked as a graduate assistant (1994-95) under former head coach Bob Simmons. Wide receivers coach Curtis Luper was a running back for the Cowboys from 1984-87, where he played with current OSU head coach Mike Gundy. Luper coached the OSU running backs from 2005-08.

    4: Number of times TCU sacked Kansas quarterback Jake Heaps last week. The Frogs lead the Big 12 in sacks with 22. On Saturday, the Frogs will face an offense that has allowed five sacks in five games.

    5: Turnovers Oklahoma State forced in a 33-29 win over Kansas State on Oct. 5. The Cowboys recovered two fumbles and intercepted three passes.

    +7:Turnover margin for Oklahoma State, which is first in the Big 12. The Frogs were +7 last week, but have dropped to +4 after five turnovers (and two forced turnovers) against Kansas.

    16.2: Average yards gained per punt return for the Cowboys’ return man, Josh Stewart, tops in the Big 12. Stewart also leads OSU with 21 receptions for 332 yards and two touchdowns.

    20: Consecutive wins Oklahoma State has over unranked opponents entering Saturday’s game. The Cowboys lost to unranked Houston in 2009.

    29.1: TCU’s third down conversion rate through six games. The Frogs are 23-of-79 and rank last in the conference. Oklahoma State is 30-of-70 (42.9) on third downs through five games (fifth in Big 12).

    30: Oklahoma State has scored 30 or more points in each of its last 23 home games. The last time the Cowboys failed to score 30 points at home was a 24-17 win over Texas Tech in 2009.
