Chasing History: James Washington Passes Justin Blackmon in Career Receiving Yards



On Saturday, James Washington put up his fourth 100+ yards receiving game of the season. His 127-yard, 1-TD performance lifted him over Justin Blackmon on the OSU all-time receiving yards list with 3,627, and he’s now second behind only the great Rashaun Woods.

His only TD, which came early in the game, put him at 31 on his career — tied for second in the OSU record books now with Hart Lee Dykes.

WR Receiving Yards Receiving TDs
Rashaun Woods 4,414 42
James Washington 3,627 31
Justin Blackmon 3,564 40
Hart Lee Dykes 3,510 31
D’Juan Woods 2,751 20
Dez Bryant 2,425 29

So long as Washington continues to put up gaudy numbers through the air, he’ll likely surpass Rashaun Woods in yards by seasons end. He needs to average about 100 per game to get it done, bowl game included. In the race to the top of the record book in receiving TDs, however, he needs to average 1.4 per contest — slightly higher than his 1.0 mark through 5 games.

As for his gunslinger, Rudolph grew his lead on the all-time passing yards list and inched ever-closer to B. Weedz and his passing TDs mark of 75.

QB Pass Yards Pass TDs
Mason Rudolph 10,623 71
Brandon Weeden 9,260 75
Mike Gundy 8,473 57
Zac Robinson 8,317 66
Josh Fields 6,090 55

With Rudolph tossing at least two TDs per game this season (he’s averaging 3.2 per game), don’t be surprised to see this mark fall next weekend in homecoming against Baylor. The Bears are allowing 237.6 passing yards per contest on 12 yards per completion.
