Cowboys all over national statistics

Oklahoma State wideout Adarius Bowman's huge day at Kansas has pushed him to the top of Division I-A's leader board for receiving yards per game (123.8) and total receiving yards (743).

OSU shows up across the board among the nation's leaders, particularly on the offensive side of the football.

Bowman's standing in the two categories listed above is made more impressive by the fact that Bowman's 5.5 receptions per game ranks only as No. 31 in the nation - he's doing more in less chances than other receivers. Though the NCAA doesn't officially track it, Bowman's 22.5 yards-per-catch appears to be the top number among players with at least 25 receptions.

Bowman also shows up in the All-Purpose Runners (No. 26) and Scoring (No. 46) categories.

True freshman Perrish Cox is the other Cowboy atop a national leader board.
