Hit Play: Despite Loss, OSU Had Several Big Plays against TCU



The Cowboys didn’t get the result we all wanted or expected on Saturday but there were still some highlight reel plays. For you consideration, here are the Hit Play nominees for Week 4.

The top play each week — as decided by you — will make it to a pre-bowl playoff where you will then be able to decide the best play of the year.

Rudolph-to-Washington 86-yard touchdown strike

This was one of a few bright spots early for the Cowboys. After an opening drive consisting of five straight rushes and an incomplete pass, Yurcich unfettered Rudolph’s arm on the second play of possession No. 2. There’s not a better deep-ball duo than these two. This one ties a previous Rudolph pass for the fourth-longest passing play in OSU history.

Tre Flowers’ Interception of Kenny Hill

The Cowboys need more of this on Saturday. TCU fumbled the ball three times but the Cowboys couldn’t recover a single one. This pick was just a bad decision by Kenny Hill but Flowers was ready and made the play. Unfortunately, OSU could not pay it off and went three and out the ensuing possession.

Rudolph’s scramble-and-score to Dillon Stoner

Rudolph has always been a bit slippery in the pocket but he’s become some much better at making plays like this. Just like the play against Pitt, QB1 keeps his eyes downfield and then pays it with an NFL throw to Dillon Stoner.

Jalen McCleskey 34-yard catch to set up a score

On the possession following an ill-advised double pass-interception, McCleskey did his best to redeem himself with this 34-yard catch to set up a Justice Hill score. The combination of speed and hand-eye coordination it takes to make this play make it all the more impressive.

Winners So Far

• Week 1 – Tyron Johnson’s 44-yard welcome parade
• Week 2 – Darrion Daniels’ deflection/Justin Phillips pick-6
Week 3 — Mason Rudolph’s Heisman moment againt Pitt
