Chasing History: Washington Inches Closer to Rashaun Woods’ Yards Receiving Record



Mason Rudolph moved to within one touchdown of Brandon Weeden’s all-time OSU passing TDs record this weekend with his effortless three scores through the air, putting him at 74 all time. He now has a ridiculous 11,082 pass yards total and counting heading into Week 8.

There’s a good chance he takes down Weeden on Saturday against Texas [knocks on every oak tree in my neighborhood], considering he’s averaging a little more than three TD flicks per game this season.

QB Pass Yards Pass TDs
Mason Rudolph 11,082 74
Brandon Weeden 9,260 75
Mike Gundy 8,473 57
Zac Robinson 8,317 66
Josh Fields 6,090 55

Rudolph’s main target this weekend against Baylor, James Washington, benefited most from Rudolph’s big day against the Bears. He finished with the ultimate Washington stat line: 6 receptions, 235 yards receiving, 1 receiving TD, 1 rushing TD, and an inch closer to Rashaun Woods’ all-time record of 4,414.

To topple Woods’ yards receiving record, Washington only needs 101.5 yards per game to surpass the mark in the regular season, and 87 per game to get the job done including a bowl game. So it seems more likely than not he can get the job done.

He’s averaging 147 yards per game. That is, how the children say these days, quite lit.

The receiving TDs mark held by Rashaun (and a close second to Blackmon), however, doesn’t seem as likely to fall. Washington has 6 TDs this season, averaging 1 per game, which would put him at 12 for the regular season and 38 for his career if he continued that pace throughout the regular season.

It’s entirely possible if he goes off for a 3 TD performance in a game or two before the season’s end, that he can finish No. 1 all-time. But it’s going to come down to the wire, it appears.

WR Receiving Yards Receiving TDs
Rashaun Woods 4,414 42
James Washington 3,805 32
Justin Blackmon 3,564 40
Hart Lee Dykes 3,510 31
D’Juan Woods 2,751 20
Dez Bryant 2,425 29

Also, I can confirm via sources that this is very good.

Also, this is also very good. It’s time to acknowledge that James Washington might go down as the all-time best receiver in OSU history.
