Only two players have ever rushed for 2,000 yards in a season for Oklahoma State: Barry Sanders and Chuba Hubbard.

Hubbard surpassed the 2,000-yard mark in the second quarter of the Texas Bowl against Texas A&M. Here was the run that did it:


Hubbard finished the season with 2,094 rushing yards after running for 158 against A&M. Hubbard’s redshirt sophomore season finished with the 18th most rushing yards in NCAA history. Hubbard is the 32nd player in NCAA history to run for at least 2,000 yards in a season.

He didn’t catch Sanders’ 2,850-yard NCAA record, but coming in second in program history to arguably the greatest college football player ever is nothing to get down about.

Here is how Hubbard’s 2019 season ranks among the program’s best:

2,094 rushing yards – second
328 carries – tied for third
21 rushing touchdowns – tied for fourth
6.38 yards per carry – eighth (minimum 100 attempts)
161.1 yards per game – third (minimum five games)
2,334 all-purpose yards – second

Interestingly enough, both of his ties are with Thurman Thomas. Hubbard’s 328 carries are tied with Thomas’ sophomore season, and Hubbard’s 21 rushing touchdowns are tied with Thomas’ senior season.
