Oklahoma State's Rudolph shows National Football League form in rout of Pitt

Share

Rudolph was 20-of-28 for 423 yards and five touchdowns in the first half, breaking his own school record for most passing yardage in a half.

It's a message that has appeared on the scoreboard during every home game for the last three years.

Pitt was focused on stopping Washington after he racked up 296 yards and two touchdowns against the Panthers a year ago.

In addition to Rudolph's prolific afternoon, the Cowboys became the first offense since Texas Tech in 2005 to have four different receivers finish with 100 or more yards receiving in a single game, as Jalen McCleskey (162 yards), James Washington (124), Ateman (109) and Dillon Stoner (100) all hit the 100-yard threshold. He finished with 497 yards and five touchdowns before exiting midway through the third quarter.

"They all did their job", Rudolph said.

All it took was two minutes, the Cowboys marched right up the field in a seven play, 75 yard drive and found the end zone on a 20 yard touchdown run by sophomore running back Justice Hill. By the time Washington caught his first pass, a seven-yard hookup midway through the second quarter, Oklahoma State was already up five touchdowns. Pitt's offensive line has struggled protecting the quarterback, allowing eight sacks in two games. "If they're not doing something, either I'm running the ball or JD is running the ball". He did not throw a pass into double coverage in the first half.

"Hang in there", Eichort said. "We have to stick together and there is no way out of a hole like this without working", he said. After a three-and-out by the Huskies' offense to start the fourth quarter, Nebraska's offense came on the field ready to play.

Up 49-14 and seemingly well on the way to an eighth touchdown in nine drives, Rudolph got greedy, rifling a pass into the end zone for McCleskey before confirming the defense.

The offer was not a bribe to get students to stay specifically for Saturday's loss, however, according to Pitt officials said.

One of the top prospects in the 2018 National Football League draft class, Rudolph is strengthening his draft stock with every game. The Cowboys did whatever they wanted whenever they wanted during a first half in which they rolled up 516 yards.
