Oklahoma State Stats
PY 2nd - RY 43rd - PF 2nd - PA 61st

So the final record of the FBS (note that they didn't face a single FCS team) teams they beat comes out to be 75-57. If you went through and look at the victories of the teams Oklahoma State faced you're looking at a record of 233-237 looking at the FBS opponents they faced, If you add in the FCS opponents that turns out to be 275-287.

Also worth note is that if you look through all the victories you will only find 8 FCS teams vs 11 throughout bama's victories and opponents' victories (and that's not including all the teams that bama's fcs opponent, georgia southern, faced throughout the year (including those would bring the total up to 22).

Another item of note is Bama only beat 2 FBS teams that have 8+ wins (1 9 win team (Penn State) 1 10 win team (Arkansas)) while Oklahoma State beat 5 teams that have 8+ wins (2 9 win teams (Baylor and Oklahoma) 1 10 win team (Kansas State). Alabama faced 7 teams that finished .500 (4 finished sub .500) or less while Oklahoma State faced 5 that finished .500 (3 finished sub .500).

This makes it pretty damn clear that Oklahoma State played the far tougher schedule no matter what someone wants to believe about the SEC being a tougher conference. So what if Bama has the better loss, Oklahoma State has the better wins by far.

And finally Bama beat 3 teams that finished ranked (#6 Arkansas, #22 Penn State, #25 Auburn (which is joke, Auburn shouldn't be ranked with a 7-5 record)) while Oklahoma State beat 4 teams that finished ranked (#8 Kansas State, #12 Baylor, #14 Oklahoma, #24 Texas (which is a joke just like Auburn)).
