Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph didn’t play to his usual standards. Apparently, an injury of some sort might’ve been the cause.
After the Cowboys’ 13-10 overtime victory against Texas, Rudolph told reporters he dealt with a “very minor injury” against the Longhorns. Cameras caught Rudolph heading toward the locker room with a trainer at one point, but he returned to the field after a Texas penalty award the Cowboys a first down.

For only the sixth time in his career, Rudolph appeared in a game and didn’t throw a touchdown pass. Saturday’s game was the first time in eight contests he didn’t reach 300 yards.
The Cowboys managed to earn their fifth straight road victory against the Longhorns despite whatever Rudolph was dealing with. They clearly relief on their run game far more than they usually do, potentially the result of Rudolph’s situation.
Still, he managed to earn his 28th career victory as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback, matching coach Mike Gundy for the most in Oklahoma State history. If Rudolph is “fine,” as he said, he should be able to break the tie. He’ll get his first chance to do so next week on the road against West Virginia.
