Hit Play: OSU-Pitt Brought Us No Shortage of Buzzworthy Clips



The Cowboys dominated Pitt in one of the most efficient and lopsided victories of the Mike Gundy era. And there were plenty of reel-worthy highlights along the way. We’ve narrowed down the top four and you get to vote for your favorite.

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

Let’s get into it. Be sure to vote at the tweet linked below.

Justice Hill jump-cuts a defender out of his ankles

Justice had one Hill of a bounce-back game. He thrashed Pitt’s defense for 91 yards and two scores on 8.3 yards per carry and he was done at halftime. But plays like this show why he could be playing on Sundays in the not so distant future.

Tylan Wallace introduces himself

The Cowboys’ highest-rated receiver prospect since Dez hasn’t seen many targets through his first three games. But with the game easily in-hand, Taylor Cornelius and Wallace gave us something to actually care about in the fourth quarter. The Oil Baron showed he could sling it and the true freshman showed why he might be OSU’s star wideout of the future.

Mason Rudolph’s Heisman moment

Mason Rudolph had probably the best first half of his career when you consider the passing yard record, the five touchdowns and the amount of Heisman buzz his dismantling of defensive whiz Pat Narduzzi’s group is bringing. But this was his best play of the game and it put the Cowboys up 21-0, essentially hammering a first-quarter nail in Pitt’s coffin.

Justin Phillips’ pick-6

For the second-straight week, Justin Phillips was in the right place at the right time and capitalized. Phillips again hauled in a deflected ball, secured it and made his way to pay dirt.

Winners so far.

Week 1 – Tyron Johnson’s 44-yard welcome parade.

Week 2 – Darrion Daniels’ deflection/Justin Phillips pick-6.
