It's a Magnificent Seven for Woods

September 21, 2003|From Associated Press

DALLAS — Rashaun Woods set a Division I-A record with seven touchdown catches and had career highs of 13 receptions and 232 yards as Oklahoma State beat Southern Methodist, 52-6, Saturday night.

Woods had five touchdown receptions by halftime, including three on consecutive snaps, then tied the 34-year-old record with a five-yarder early in the third quarter and broke it with an 11-yard play late in the quarter.

He didn't return to go for the NCAA all-division mark of eight set by Paul Zaeske of Division II North Park in 1968. Tim Delaney of San Diego State had held the I-A mark since 1969, when he caught six against New Mexico State.

Woods' first five scores covered two, 10, 25, 32 and 34 yards, putting Oklahoma State (3-1) ahead 38-0.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Woods also set the single-game school record for scores of any kind. His first touchdown catch was the 30th of his career, another school record and also the Big 12 mark. He's already the school's leader in yards receiving.

Josh Fields, who was just lobbing the ball into the end zone on most of the scores, tied the Big 12 record with seven touchdown passes. He finished 17 of 27 for 265 yards; only four catches for 33 yards were not by Woods.
