Mason Rudolph on precipice of more Oklahoma State records

Quarterback Mason Rudolph owns about 30 Oklahoma State records. He can add to that number Saturday.

Rudolph enters Saturday’s matchup with Texas one passing touchdown and one victory shy of tying program records. Rudolph has thrown 74 touchdown passes in his career, one shy of Brandon Weeden’s 75. His first touchdown, pass or run, would also be his 88th, tying Zac Robinson for the most by a Cowboy.

If the Cowboys win, it would be Rudolph’s 28th as their starter, tying his coach, Mike Gundy, for the most in Oklahoma State history. Additionally, it would be Rudolph’s third victory against Texas, which would make him the first Cowboy quarterback to beat the Longhorns three times.

Rudolph is already Oklahoma State’s leader in passing yards, 300-yard games and pass attempts, setting several other records in route. With a 459-yard performance against Baylor last week, Rudolph tied Weeden with his seventh career 400-yard game. It was also his seventh straight outing with 300 passing yards, establishing another program mark.

Yet, Rudolph goes into Saturday without the one accomplishment he truly seeks: a Big 12 championship. A victory against the Longhorns would not only help him rise up the record books, but also get closer to his ultimate goal.
