STILLWATER, OKLA. (AP) - Mike Gundy spent the better part of a decade going up against Mike Leach’s potent offenses at Texas Tech, then watched as the Red Raiders were able to take the next step and become a legitimate national championship contender.

The questions from Oklahoma State fans were only natural: Why not just do what Leach was doing?

It was never that simple, but now the 12th-ranked Cowboys have the next best thing _ or perhaps something even better.

First-year offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen has Oklahoma State (9-1, 5-1 Big 12) leading the nation in total offense despite massive turnover on the roster from last season.

The high-scoring Cowboys also lead the Big 12 South with two games left in the regular season, including this Saturday against Kansas.
