I don’t think there has ever been a more explosive (nor more fun) 5 ½ minutes of football than what we saw in last seasons Oklahoma/Nebraska game. Fresh off a drubbing of
OU capped a 7 play 53 yard drive with a 2 yard touchdown run by Chris Brown to take a 7-0 lead at the 12:17 mark of the first quarter. At the 12:13 mark Dominique Franks returned an interception 18 yards for a score to make it 14-0. Then OU bumped it up to 21-0 at the 10:31 mark on a 48 yard touchdown pass from Sam Bradford to Quentin Chaney. Oklahoma capped off the 5 ½ minute barrage with a 9 yard strike from Bradford to Jermaine Gresham to lead 28-0 with 9:27 still to play in the first quarter. At the end of the first fifteen minutes the Sooners led 35-0 and the final three quarters would become "garbage time." Here are a few fun facts about the 2008 OU/Nebraska football game that you may have forgotten about.
