No. 30 played his 30th game as a Cowboy on Saturday, as he continues to chase Oklahoma State’s rushing greats.

Chuba Hubbard ran for 139 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in the Pokes’ 24-21 win against Iowa State on Saturday. That brings his career yardage to 3,312, just 97 yards behind Tatum Bell for eighth on OSU’s all-time list.

Rank Name Yards
1 Thurman Thomas 5,001
2 Terry Miller 4,754
3 David Thompson 4,318
4 Kendall Hunter 4,181
5 Barry Sanders 3,797
6 Ernest Anderson 3,780
7 Justice Hill 3,539
8 Tatum Bell 3,409
9 Chuba Hubbard 3,312
10 Joseph Randle 3,085

Hubbard’s touchdown against Iowa State might have been the best of his career.

The play started to the left, but Hubbard had to make a cut behind the line of scrimmage and run back right. Four Cyclones then surrounded him at the line of scrimmage, but he was able to accelerate back left and run 32 yards to the end zone.

It was the 33rd rushing touchdown of Hubbard’s career. That puts him eighth on OSU’s all-time list, a single score away from a tie for sixth.

Rank Name Touchdowns
1 Barry Sanders 53
2 Terry Miller 49
3 Thurman Thomas 47
4 Joseph Randle 40
5 Kendall Hunter 37
T6 Tatum Bell 34
T6 Jeremy Smith 34
8 Chuba Hubbard 33
9 Justice Hill 30
10 Bob Fenimore 28

Hubbard again upped his career yards per game total, which sits third in school history, as he builds a little bit of a cushion between him and Thurman Thomas.
