Mason Rudolph is Oklahoma State’s career passing leader.

The 11th-ranked Cowboys’ senior surpassed Brandon Weeden’s career mark of 9,260 yards Friday night against South Alabama. He came in needing 244 yards and got that on the final drive of the second quarter.

Rudolph finished the half 20-of-29 passing for 276 yards, staking Oklahoma State to a 20-0 halftime lead.

He passed for two first-quarter touchdowns, including a 66-yarder to James Washington on a slant pattern.

Rudolph was the only quarterback in the nation last season to top 4,000 passing yards with less than five interceptions, getting picked off just four times.

With the early touchdown, Washington moved into a tie with Dez Bryant for fourth on Oklahoma State’s career list with 29 TD catches.
