But the fact their stats are comparable says a lot.

No, that doesn't make Robinson a Heisman candidate. But he is the trigger man for one of the nation's most explosive offenses. In the last eight games, the Cowboys have averaged 547.7 yards.

What sets Robinson apart is that he makes quick decisions and gets to the corner quickly on option plays. Reid could break a long one when he got in the open field. But Reid rarely got there. In contrast, Robinson has rushed for more than 100 yards three times this season.

With Robinson under center, OSU has had fewer wasted possessions. That's pivotal for a defensive challenged team that often has to outscore opponents.

Gundy said Robinson must improve his throwing, pointing to the three or four bad throws he makes most games. But Robinson can fling it. Two weeks ago against Texas, Robinson broke Gundy's record for passing yards (430) in a game.

"Zac can do it all,” Fedora said. "He can run. He makes good reads. He can throw. If we wanted to go with five wideouts and throw the ball every down he could do that.”

Told his name now sits atop the who's who list of OSU football, Robinson did a double-take as if someone would pause, then tell him: "April fools.”

"It really hasn't sunk in,” Robinson said. "There's a lot of great players who have come through here. It's an honor just to be mentioned with those guys. I owe a lot to my teammates, the backs, receivers and the offensive line.

"I just go out every game, play hard, takes what the defense gives us and let the stats take care of themselves.”
