Pistols Firing, the Oklahoma State motto, has been an understatement this year.

The offense once again resembled a video game, and the Cowboys look every bit the contender in the Big 12.

And for the College Football Playoff.

Quarterback Mason Rudolph and his powerhouse offense, which includes an array of receivers and backs, lit up the scoreboard at Heinz Field, routing Pitt 59-21.

The Cowboys led 49-14 at halftime and had piled up more than 400 yards. Rudolph had pitched five touchdown passes.

Rudolph, who took a seat midway through the third quarter with a 56-14 lead, was 23-for-32 for 497 yards and five touchdowns. Alas, he did throw an interception.

The Cowboys had four receivers who surpassed 100 yards receiving: Jalen McCleskey, James Washington, Marcell Ateman and Dillon Stoner.

Rudolph should be moving up those Heisman charts.
