Taylor Cornelius
QuarterbackQB
Hits 300-yard mark in loss

March 8, 2020
Cornelius completed 22 of 34 passes for 300 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Vipers' 41-34 loss to the Wildcats on Sunday. He also rushed seven times for 45 yards and another score, threw a one-point conversion pass and committed a fumble returned for a touchdown.
ANALYSIS
Cornelius enjoyed his most prolific game as a pro in the back-and-forth shootout, but his final interception of the night, which seemed to occur on a miscommunication, came in the Wildcats' end zone with 37 seconds remaining and the Vipers on the verge of a potential game-tying or go-ahead sequence. Prior to that, Cornelius had led a pair of impressive fourth-quarter scoring drives, the latter culminating in a 24-yard touchdown to Reece Horn to make it a one-possession game. However, in further evidence of what a mixed bag the night was for the Oklahoma State product, Cornelius fumbled at his own 23-yard line after a sack earlier in the fourth quarter, with that loose ball being returned for a touchdown that proved to be the difference in the contest. With this tough loss behind him, Cornelius will now look to build on the positive aspects of his performance in a Week 6 Saturday battle versus the BattleHawks.
