Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph eyes first win vs. Baylor

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph isn’t short on wins as the Cowboys starters, but there’s still a few career achievements he hasn’t crossed off quite yet.

A win over Baylor still eludes Rudolph, going 0-for-3 in his career against the Bears. It might seem a bit strange considering Baylor’s 0-5 start to its 2017 season, but Rudolph has had his eyes on this game for some time, according to John Helsley of The Oklahoman.

“I think what obviously sticks out most to me is I haven’t beaten those guys,” Rudolph told Helsley. “And I want to beat them. This is kind of one I’ve had circled on the schedule for a while now. So I’m preparing hard, getting ready to go and lead my team and play my butt off.”

Oklahoma State’s last win over Baylor came on Nov. 23, 2013, when the Cowboys won 49-17 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. It’s been nothing but losses since, falling 49-28 in 2014, 45-35 in ’15 and 35-24 in ’16.

The Cowboys’ 3:30 p.m. ET game on Saturday seems like their best chance to end the losing streak against the Bears. Although, Oklahoma State is fully aware Baylor has played much better in recent weeks, despite what its record might say.

Oklahoma State should be well rested coming off a bye week, but even a bye didn’t help their instate rivals Oklahoma against a massive underdog in Iowa State on Saturday, Oct. 7. The Cowboys will undoubtedly need to be locked into avoid the embarrassing fate of their Bedlam foes if they want to stay in the hunt for a Big 12 championship berth.
