Chasing History: Where Rudolph, Washington Stand in OSU Record Books



Oklahoma State dropped a game on Saturday to TCU, but the Mason Rudolph to James Washington connection wasn’t short of fireworks.

The duo connected six times for 145 yards and one TD that lifted Washington over Dez Bryant on the all-time TD reception list. Rudolph, for his part, extended his lead on Brandon Weeden on the passing yards list and inched closer to the G.O.A.T.’s passing TD’s mark, too.

QB Pass Yards Pass TDs
Mason Rudolph 10,247 68
Brandon Weeden 9,260 75
Mike Gundy 8,473 57
Zac Robinson 8,317 66
Josh Fields 6,090 55

Rudolph’s 2 TDs through the air broke the tie with Zac Robinson and moved him to 68 overall in his career, now just 7 shy of Weeden’s record. He need only to average less than a TD pass per game to surpass Weeden in that category in the regular season, and with at least 2 in each game this season, that record theoretically should fall rather quickly if he can continue his pace.

He is now No. 2 on the all-time OSU passing TDs list. Here’s the same chart sorted by pass TDs.

QB Pass Yards Pass TDs
Brandon Weeden 9,260 75
Mason Rudolph 10,247 68
Zac Robinson 8,317 66
Mike Gundy 8,473 57
Josh Fields 6,090 55

Washington only had 145 yards through the air, thanks largely to this 86-yard #RudytoWash bomb that gave OSU its only lead of the game. He’s now firmly within striking distance to pass Hart Lee Dykes on the yards receiving list, and with 122 yards against Texas Tech, he could leap frog both Dykes and Justin Blackmon. Pretty impressive stuff, eh?

WR Receiving Yards Receiving TDs
Rashaun Woods 4,414 42
Justin Blackmon 3,564 40
Hart Lee Dykes 3,510 31
James Washington 3,443 30
D’Juan Woods 2,751 20
Dez Bryant 2,425 29

Spinning this forward, Washington needs to average 122 yards per game to pass Woods on the receiving yards list in the regular season, and 108 per game operating under the assumption that OSU goes bowling.

Another stat category Washington is dominating, albeit non-OSU record book related, is yards receiving nationally. Despite catching fewer catches than 13 of the nation’s leading receivers, Washington is second nationally with 520 yards — 13 behind leader Cam Phillips — thanks to an NCAA leading 27.4 yards per catch this season.

Cam Phillips Virginia Tech 34 523 15.4

All hail the President!
