James Washington should be haunting the Longhorns secondary during their film study sessions for the next two weeks.
The Oklahoma State receiver was honored Sunday as the Walter Camp national offensive player of the week. The Longhorns have a bye this week, then will travel to Stillwater for a date against the Cowboys, Oct. 1.
Washington caught nine passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns in Oklahoma State’s 45-38 victory over Pittsburgh. One of his scores was from 91 yards. That was on the game’s first play. His game was far better than Cal’s Chad Hansen, who abused the Longhorns secondary late Saturday with 12 catches for 196 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Washington’s yardage was the fourth highest ever posted by a Big 12 receiver.
And the guy throwing the passes to Washington also had a nice day. Quarterback Mason Rudolph threw for 540 yards, a Cowboys school record.
