Oklahoma State put some points up and a beating on South Alabama in Mobile last Friday night. There were several reel-worthy highlights but we’ve narrowed down our four favorite and are going to give you a chance to vote for the best.
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.
Rudolph-to-Washington for 66 and 6
This might be the most routine 66-yard touchdown ever, which is what makes it so impressive. These two have connected for a ton of long plays over their four seasons together and took up where they left off from Week 1 with a 77-yard score. This 66-yard TD makes 13 receiving plays of 50 yards or more during Washington’s time at OSU and he currently leads all FBS receivers with a career average of 19.8 yards per reception.
Darrion Daniels’ tip and Justin Phillips takes advantage
Darrion Daniels needs to have a breakout year for Oklahoma State in 2017 and he showed off some of the skills and physicality that make that a possibility in this play. He beats starting left guard Harrison Louden, the 6-3, 295-pound sophomore, and has the wherewithal to rush the QB and get a hand up which makes this score possible. Kudos to Trey Carter for making the effort. More kudos to Justin Phillips for taking advantage but the helmet sticker goes to Daniels on this one.
DeQuinton Osborne had a nice game in Mobile. There was this sack and tackle for loss but later had the play where he planted the petunia as well. If Oklahoma State is going to reach its goals, I think DQ will big a big reason why.
J.D. King Breaks Loose
There weren’t a ton of rushing highlights in this game, especially early. But freshman J.D. King did take advantage of nice running lane for this game-leading 31-yard rush. Nothing super pretty or complicated. Just take the shortest path from A to B, a
straight diagonal line. Bonus points to Chris Lacy for doing Chris Lacy things with that block on the perimeter.
