Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph Magically Escapes Tacklers, Throws 69-Yard TD

Heisman Watch Big weekends for Lamar Jackson Baker Mayfield Mason Rudolph remains steady as next

Rudolph proved it with a record-setting first-half performance against Pitt at Heinz Field Saturday. It was the longest active streak in FBS.

No play better explains the tone of the game for Pitt than the 69-yard bomb by quarterback Mason Rudolph.

"They all did their job", Rudolph said. No Oklahoma State team had ever produced more than two 100-yard receivers in a single game before the quartet turned the trick against the Panthers. By that time, Rudolph will hopefully have gotten his due.

Washington was one of a school-record four receivers with at least 100 receiving yards on Saturday, joined by Jalen McCleskey (seven receptions for 162 yards and three touchdowns), Dillon Stoner (5-100-1) and Marcell Ateman (4-109-1). James Washington added 124 yards receiving. The Cowboys did it despite missing LSU transfer Tyron Johnson, suspended for the game for a violation of team rules. Mayfield was brilliant against the Buckeyes, and after throwing for 715 yards and six touchdowns without an interception over the first two weeks of the season deservedly put himself among the top Heisman Trophy candidates in college football.

Oklahoma State: DE DeQuinton Osborne.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys led 49-14 at halftime, putting up 21 points in the first quarter and 28 points in the second. DiNucci guided the Panthers to touchdowns on his first two drives but fizzled in the second half, completing 13 of 25 passes for 228 yards with a touchdown and two picks. The Cowboys did whatever they wanted whenever they wanted during a first half in which they rolled up 516 yards. He finished with 497 yards and five touchdowns before exiting midway through the third quarter. This is against a Pittsburgh defense that looked pretty solid against Penn State last weekend.
