By the time the 2014 season comes to a close, the Oklahoma Sooners may very well have a new all-time career points leader. While the title usually goes to kickers, former standout running back, DeMarco Murray currently sits atop the list with a total of 690 points scored during his record setting career at OU. However, Michael Hunnicutt can be found right behind him with more than enough time to bridge the gap.
|Career Scoring Leaders|
|1. DeMarco Murray||RB||2006-2010||390||65||0||0|
|2. Michael Hunnicutt||K||2011-2013||351||1||159||62|
|3. Steve Owens||RB||1967-1969||342||57||0||0|
|4. R. D. Lashar||K||1987-1990||328||0||196||44|
|5. Tim Lashar||K||1983-1986||321||0||177||48|
|6. Billy Sims||RB||1975-1979||318||53||0||0|
|7. Tim Duncan||K||1999-2001||313||2||157||48|
|8. Garrett Hartley||K||2004-2007||310||0||169||47|

The 6'1 redshirt senior has amassed quite the credentials during his collegiate career. Before Hunnicutt, fans closed their eyes each time the field goal unit trotted onto the field. Yet, in 2011 all of that changed. As a freshman, Hunnicutt connected on 87.5% of his FG attempts. That number was eclipsed last season as the kicker hit on 88.9% of his attempts. Needless to say, there is a reason this kid has earned the nickname "Moneycutt."
At a clip of 117 points scored by the kicker each season, it becomes clear that a new all-time point leader at Oklahoma will likely be crowned soon. Of course, that is assuming he stays healthy throughout the duration of the 2014 season. Best of luck this season Hunnicutt!
