Mason Rudolph deserves more Heisman love after record-setting performance

Mason Rudolph deserves more Heisman love after record-setting performance

The Cowboys stormed out to a 49-14 lead at Heinz Field behind a whopping 423 yards and five touchdown passes from Heisman candidate QB Mason Rudolph. The Cowboys put up 676 total yards of offense behind another strong performance from quarterback Mason Rudolph.

Wide receiver Jalen McCleskey had three touchdowns, including a 48-yard catch-and-run as part of his 162 receiving yards on the day.

While Rudolph's eye-popping statistics will earn him plenty of media attention, the scouts attending this game - like Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman - were likely more impressed with his noticeably improved distribution of the ball and overall awareness of the defense.

Oklahoma State scored touchdowns on each of its first six possessions, with the first Panthers defensive stop coming as the clock expired in the first half.

The fire was confined to 100×80 sq ft area on the ground floor of the studio building in the electrical wing. A massive fire on Saturday damaged India's popular RK Studio in western state of Maharashtra, police said.

Rudolph's only flaw Saturday was an interception in the third quarter that ended his school-record streak of 216 consecutive passes without an interception. "He got out of his box one time, and when he did, he made an interception". Washington had three catches for 68 yards.

Rudolph's success resulted in big numbers for the OSU receivers, as well, as four players tallied more than 100 receiving yards. But the Cowboys will return home to open Big 12 play against TCU on September 23. OSU jumped out to a 14-0 lead with 7:46 left in the first.

Oklahoma State: DE DeQuinton Osborne.

But back to that first half. A year ago in Stillwater, Rudolph threw for a program-record 540 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-38 win, including a Cowboys-record 372 yards in the first half. Rudolph finished the day 23-for-32 with 497 passing yards, five touchdowns and an interception. Cowboys up 28-0 with 13:41 remaining in the half.
