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.

Year Receiver Catches Yards Touchdowns Opponent
2018 Tylan Wallace 10 222 2 No. 6 Texas
2017 James Washington 6 235 1 Baylor
2016 James Washington 9 296 2 Pittsburgh
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
2008 Dez Bryant 9 236 3 Houston
2008 Dez Bryant 11 212 2 Baylor
2006 Adarius Bowman 13 300 4 Kansas

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...

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...

After time...

Wallace had a lot of people talking both during and after the game.

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.
