STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Taylor Cornelius passed for 295 yards and five touchdowns in his first career start to help Oklahoma State defeat Missouri State — on Thursday night.
Cornelius, a fifth-year senior, had been Mason Rudolph’s backup for most of his career, but Rudolph is now with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cornelius seized his opportunity by completing 24 of 34 passes and rushing for 27 yards in the season opener for both teams.
