Woods inches closer to Big 12 records

Averaging 115.7 yards and 14.2 receptions a game, OSU wide receiver Rashaun Woods fights Mizzou's Justin Gage for the top spots.

Oklahoma State All-America candidate Rashaun Woods moved closer to replacing Big 12 Conference records with his 134 yard performance on Oct. 19.

In the 24-21 win against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Woods caught 11 passes en route to triple-digit yardage in the air.

The current Big 12 record for catches is owned by former Texas standout Kwame Cavil (1997-1999). Cavil nabbed 174 receptions in his career with the Longhorns.

Before Saturday's game with the Huskers, Woods was in fourth place, and the only active player ahead of him was Justin Gage of Missouri. Gage recorded five receptions for 114 yards in his performance against Texas Tech Saturday, which helped Woods gain momentum.

In the receiving yards category, Woods was sixth in the Big 12 standings with 2,028 yards before Saturday. Gage was third with 2,209 receiving yards. With his recent 134-yard performance, Woods moved ahead of the numbers set by former players Quincy Morgan (KSU 1999-00), and Javon Green (CU, 1997-00).

Woods now has 2,162 career receiving yards, and Gage- the only other active player Woods is chasing- has 2,323. Gage is a senior in his last year of eligibility, and Woods is a junior.
