With titans like Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas coming after him, Terry Miller is often an underappreciated piece of Oklahoma State history. But now his name will reside among those two in Boone Pickens Stadium for fans to see every Saturday.

Oklahoma State on Monday announced Miller would be the fourth addition to the program’s Ring of Honor. At Oklahoma State from 1974 to 1977, Miller is second in program history with 4,754 rushing yards and 49 rushing touchdowns. Miller was the seventh Cowboy inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2022. He joins Thomas, Sanders and Bob Fenimore in Oklahoma State’s Ring of Honor.

Miller will be inducted into the Ring of Honor on Oct. 14 when Oklahoma State hosts Kansas.

Miller was a two-time All-American and won Big Eight Offensive Player of the Year as a junior and a senior. He finished second in Heisman Trophy voting in 1997 and was fourth in 1996. Miller’s No. 43 is one of four retired numbers at OSU.

He is the only player in OSU’s history to finish with 1,000 rushing yards in three seasons. He ran for the most yards as a junior, where his 1,887 yards rank third among OSU’s rushing seasons behind Barry Sanders and Chuba Hubbard.

Miller ran for 200+ yards in three games, including a career-high 246 against Missouri in 1977.

Before bowl games were everywhere, Miller helped the Cowboys to a pair of bowl victories. Miller was on the Cowboys’ 1974 Fiesta Bowl-winning squad, beating BYU 16-6 in the game. He also led the Cowboys to a 49-21 victory in the 1976 Tangerine Bowl, again against BYU. Miller had 173 rushing yards and four touchdowns in that game.

The Buffalo Bills selected Miller with the fifth overall pick in the 1978 NFL Draft. In 48 NFL games, Miller ran for 1,583 yards and eight touchdowns.
