Oklahoma State juniors Mason Rudolph and James Washington announced Tuesday afternoon via the Cowboy Football twitter account (@CowboyFB) that they would be returning for their senior seasons.
Rudolph, junior quarterback from Rock Hill, South Carolina, and Washington, junior receiver from Stamford, Texas, appeared in the video together to make their intentions known.
Rudolph has a 21-6 career record as the Cowboys starting quarterback the past three seasons heading into Thursday night's Alamo Bowl game against Colorado. His 8,386 yards of total offense ranks third in Oklahoma State history. He threw for 3,777 yards and 25 touchdowns with just four interceptions in helping the Cowboys to a 9-3 record this past season.
Washington caught 62 passes for 1,209 yards and nine touchdowns during the 2016 regular season. He is just one of five OSU players in history with multiple 1,000-yard seasons, joining Justin Blackmon, Rashaun Woods, Hart Lee Dykes and Adarius Bowman. His 296 receiving yards against Pittsburgh in September are the most in a game for any player against a Power Five conference opponent this season.
