Throughout each season, there are interesting notes and nuggets of information that come out of every game, win or lose.

Here’s a quick look at some of the more interesting and noteworthy facts and stats from KU's 39-32 road loss at Oklahoma State on Saturday afternoon.

The Jayhawks will be off next week and will play host to Oklahoma on Oct. 28 after the bye week.

Series History: Oklahoma State leads 41-30-3 overall and 19-14-2 in Stillwater
Kansas Captains: Jereme Robinson, Mason Fairchild, Rich Miller, Mike Novitsky
Coin Toss: Kansas won the toss and deferred, Oklahoma State elected to receive the opening kickoff.

Team Notes

• Kansas is now 602-677-58 all-time, including 13-19 in the Lance Leipold era.

• Kansas’ 32 points were the most scored against Oklahoma State in Stillwater since 2007, when the Jayhawks defeated the Cowboys, 43-28.

• Oklahoma State improves its all-time series advantage to 41-30-3, including a 19-14-2 advantage in Stillwater.

Offensive Notes

• Kansas threw for a season-high 410 yards on 23-of-34 passing.

• With his 47-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter, Trevor Wilson has now scored his third touchdown in just as many games, all of which being 47
yards or greater. Six of his seven career touchdowns have been at least 20 yards.

• Mason Fairchild hauled in a 30-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter for his first touchdown of the season and eighth of his career. He later
scored his second of the season in the second quarter for a 44-yard touchdown, matching his single-game career-high (at Oklahoma, 10-15-22). The last
Kansas player to have two receiving touchdowns of at least 30 yards in a game was Stephon Robinson Jr. on Oct. 26, 2019 vs. Texas Tech. Fairchild is the
first KU player to do so on the road since at least 1996.

• Jason Bean finished the game 23-of-34 for 410 yards and five touchdowns. His 23 completions, 410 yards and five touchdowns were all career highs. His
five passing touchdowns, tied for the second most in school history, are behind only Todd Reesing (6 - 2007 vs. Nebraska). His five passing touchdowns
are the most by a Jayhawk quarterback since Jalon Daniels passed for five vs. Arkansas in 2022.

• Bean passed Jordan Webb for 11th on the all-time Kansas career passing yards list and tied Bill Whittemore for 6th on the all-time Kansas career passing
touchdowns list.

• Bean completed 13-of-17 passes (76 percent) for 274 yards and four touchdowns in the first half. This is the second time in his career that Bean has thrown
for four touchdowns in one half, the first time came in the second half against TCU on Oct. 8, 2022.

• On the first drive in the second half, Bean completed a 42-yard touchdown pass to Skinner for his career-high fifth touchdown pass of the day. That ties
Bean for second-most passing touchdowns in a game all-time.

• Quentin Skinner completed a 49-yard touchdown with 1:06 left in the first half for his first touchdown of the 2023 season and for the sixth time in his
career. The 49-yard reception was also Skinner’s longest reception of 2023. On the first drive in the second half, Skinner caught a 42-yard touchdown to
match his career high of two touchdown receptions in a game (TCU, 10-8-22). His two receptions averaged 45.5 yards apiece.

Defensive Notes

• Kenny Logan Jr. recorded 7 total tackles in the game. That puts him in 9th on the all-time Kansas career tackles list. Logan has also recorded at least one
tackle for loss in three games this season.

• Austin Booker and JB Brown led the Jayhawks with nine total tackles. The nine tackles were a career high for both Booker and Brown.
