During the Mike Gundy era, there has been a long line of great wide receivers; Dez Bryant, Justin Blackmon, James Washington. It looks like we can now officially add one more face to Oklahoma State’s Mount Rushmore of pass-catchers.
Among the Gundy receivers, there have been nine 200+ yard games, but the one we witnessed on Wallace might have been one of the best ever.
|2018||Tylan Wallace||10||222||2||No. 6 Texas|
|2015||James Washington||4||200||2||Texas Tech|
|2011||Justin Blackmon||13||205||2||No. 14 Kansas State|
|2010||Justin Blackmon||10||207||1||Texas Tech|
Yes, previous performances have had more catches, yards, touchdowns, and yards-per-catch averages. But none came against a more highly-ranked opponent.
Throw in that Wallace did a lot of his damage in the first half, and this...
Texas has given up three individual receiving performances of 200+ yards this century.— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) October 28, 2018
1. Tyler Lockett (2013)
2. Dede Westbrook (2016)
3. Tylan Wallace (2018)
And you can easily argue it’s one of the five best receiving performances in the Mike Gundy era.
Just look at what Wallace was able to do against one of the best defenses in the Big 12. When Taylor Cornelius needed someone to go to, to make a big play, he turned to Wallace who delivered. Time...
Wallace had a lot of people talking both during and after the game.

Tylan Wallace is now #5 overall in country in receiving yards and #2 in P5. That biletnikoff talk should be real.— Adam Lunt (@AdamLunt817) October 28, 2018

As I said in my post-game thoughts, there’s no better time to put on a performance like that than in primetime against a top-10 ranked Blue Blood. The Big 12 has been put on notice. Tylan Wallace is a stud.
