Oklahoma State’s up-and-down 2019 season took a huge blow on Thursday when it was reported that star wide receiver Tylan Wallace will miss the rest of the year with a torn ACL.
The news was confirmed by The Oklahoman’s Scott Wright.
Wallace has played in all eight games this season, with 53 catches for 903 yards, along with eight touchdowns, averaging 17.0 yards per catch. He has also been the most productive receiver in college football over the last two years with 2,194 receiving yards – the next closest is Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy with 1,853.
Wallace is in his junior season and has remained one of the best deep threats in college football. Last season, he was a Biletnikoff Award Finalist. He led the nation with 63 receptions of 10 yards or longer and tied for second in the FBS with 25 receptions of 20 yards or longer. His 17.33 yards per reception also led the FBS among players with a minimum of 80 catches
His 1,491 receiving yards mark the fifth-best total in school history and three of the four ahead of him came in Biletnikoff Award-winning seasons from Justin Blackmon in 2010 and 2011 and James Washington in 2017.
Oklahoma State’s see-saw season included a win in Ames over Iowa State last week after entering the game as double-digit underdogs. The Pokes are back home this week to take on the TCU Horned Frogs, who are coming off a big win of their own over Texas.
