In the middle of Oklahoma State’s impressive showing last night on the road against South Alabama, a significant milestone was reached. With a 14-yard pass to the flat to Chris Lacy as the final minute of the first half ticked off the clock, quarterback Mason Rudolph passed Brandon Weeden to become the Cowboy’s All-Time Passing Leader.
Coach Mike Gundy, who once held the All-Time passing record himself, has seen two quarterbacks break the record in his tenure. Here’s a look at the Cowboys passing leaders.
Oklahoma State All-Time Passing Leaders
- Rudolph: 9,352 yards
- Brandon Weeden: 9,260 yards
- Mike Gundy: 8,473 yards
- Zac Robinson: 8,317 yards
- Josh Fields: 6,090 yards
From here on out, Rudolph will continue to move the bar, but he has his eye on a bigger prize.
“That’s not even one of the goals on my goal sheet,” Rudolph said after the game. “Getting the Big 12 title is the ultimate goal, and it’s going to take a lot more of these performances to get there.”
As far as the opposing coach, well, he was impressed with Rudolph’s performance as well.
“They just out-executed us,” South Alabama coach Joey Jones said. “Their quarterback was tremendous. They made a lot of big plays and completed a bunch of third-down throws. When you play a team like that, you can’t afford to not execute.”
Here’s the pass that earned him the record.
