STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) It has been a long time since someone other than Mason Rudolph was the starting quarterback at Oklahoma State.
It was late in the 2015 season when the Cowboys faced Oklahoma, and that was because Rudolph wasn't at full strength. He closed his career by starting the next 27 games and left the school as its all-time leader in passing yards, completions, attempts and touchdowns.
Now that Rudolph is with the Pittsburgh Steelers, several players are competing for the job at Oklahoma State. Senior Taylor Cornelius led the pack at the end of the spring. Dru Brown, a graduate transfer from Hawaii, and Spencer Sanders, a freshman, also are battling for the position. Neither was on campus during the spring and are catching up. Keondre Wudtee, who was injured during spring practice, is in the mix, too. They'll try to keep things going for a squad that went 10-3 last season and won the Camping World Bowl. The Cowboys will have to choose before their Aug. 30 opener against Missouri State.
