Rankings from AP Poll

The 2011 Oklahoma State Cowboys football team represented Oklahoma State University in the 2011 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Cowboys were led by seventh year head coach Mike Gundy and played their home games at Boone Pickens Stadium. They are a member of the Big 12 Conference.

The 2011 season was arguably the best in the Cowboys' 112-year football history. They opened the season with 10 straight wins, in the process rising to #2 in the AP Poll—the school's highest-ever ranking in a major poll. They ultimately finished the regular season 11–1, including a 44–10 win over rival Oklahoma for their first win in the Bedlam Series since 2002. They also won their first-ever Big 12 title and their first outright conference title since winning the 1948 Missouri Valley Conference title. They were invited to the Fiesta Bowl, their first-ever Bowl Championship Series bid and the second major-bowl appearance in school history, where they defeated Stanford 41–38 in overtime.
