Joseph Randle closing in on second 1,000-yard rushing season

by Gina Mizell Published: November 6, 2012

Despite Oklahoma State’s “Tailback U” reputation, just five running backs in school history have recorded multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons.

Joseph Randle could become the sixth Saturday against West Virginia, needing just 66 yards to hit that mark.

“I thought last week was going to be the week I did it,” Randle said. “But it looks like this week is going to be the week. I should be able to get 66 yards, or I’m not doing my job right.”

Randle had his lowest rushing output of the season last week against Kansas State, tallying just 43 yards on 15 carries with no touchdowns and one fumble.

Terry Miller reached 1,000 rushing yards three times in his OSU career, while Thurman Thomas, David Thompson, Tatum Bell and Kendall Hunter each did it twice.
