Mason Rudolph deserves more Heisman love after record-setting performance

Mason Rudolph deserves more Heisman love after record-setting performance

No Oklahoma State team had ever produced more than two 100-yard receivers in a single game before the quartet turned the trick against the Panthers. It was the longest active streak in the FBS. Then, after Pittsburgh back-up quarterback Ben Dinucci led the Panthers on an 87-yard TD drive, the Cowboys immediately marched 82 yards and scored on a dynamic 15-yard run by Hill to increase the lead to 42-7 with 6:15 left in the half. By that time, Rudolph will hopefully have gotten his due.

Rudolph obviously did an outstanding job spreading the ball around.

Oklahoma State had four 100-yard receivers on the day - Jalen McCleskey (seven receptions for 162 yards and three touchdowns), James Washington (five for 124), Marcell Ateman (four for 109 and a score) and Dillon Stoner (5, 100, 1) - the first time that has happened in major college football in 12 years. Washington had three catches for 68 yards. Cowboys PK Matt Ammendola kicked a field goal to finish with 11 points.

RyanAir is Canceling Hundreds of Flights Right Now
Between 40 and 50 flights, less than 2 per cent of the 2,500 it operates daily, will be cancelled until the end of October. The airline said it would waive a €40 (£35) surcharge normally levied to change flights.

Oklahoma State: DE DeQuinton Osborne. He completed throws to all levels of the field, showing the velocity needed for the tough sideline throws required in the National Football League, as well as excellent touch and trajectory on his deep balls, allowing his receivers space to run under them. The senior Heisman Trophy candidate shattered his own record in the first half on Saturday, throwing for 423 yards and five touchdowns to give the Cowboys a 49-14 halftime lead. This is against a Pittsburgh defense that looked pretty solid against Penn State last weekend. The Panthers played man coverage on the outside in hopes of bringing pressure on Rudolph, a plan that misfired badly a year ago and was no better at home.
