Top 20 Oklahoma Sooners all-time in career passing yards

The Oklahoma Sooners have had their fair share of quality quarterback play over the years. That play has earned All-American awards and four Heisman trophies over the years.

Oklahoma’s had success in its history with a varied array of offensive styles and quarterback play. And that shows up when you look at the Sooners’ all-time leaders in career passing yards. Sure you’ve got Landry Jones and Baker Mayfield who threw for more than 10,000 yards in their career with the Sooners. Then you have a player Jamelle Holieway who is top 20 in both career passing yards and career rushing yards. Holieway and Jack Mildren had more rushing touchdowns in their career than they did passing touchdowns.

There is one quarterback inside the top ten all-time in career passing yards that didn’t play in the last 20 years and that guy is still with the Oklahoma Sooners: wide receivers coach Cale Gundy. Gundy is No. 6 in career passing yards. Makes you wonder what kind of damage he could have done in a modern spread offense.

Spencer Rattler finished his career with the Oklahoma Sooners at No. 9 and it feels fair to wonder what he might be able to do in an offense that attempted to make adjustments to utilize his skill set. Like in the Kansas State game where Rattler was 22-25 for 243 yards and 2 touchdowns in a hyper-efficient 37 point performance for the Sooners offense. Well, he’s off to South Carolina where he’ll have a chance to get into the top 15 in Gamecocks history with a strong 2022.

Here’s a look at the top 20 Oklahoma Sooners in career passing yards.
