There have been several highlight moments between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns during their annual October rivalry game in the Cotton Bowl. Both sides of the rivalry could compile an endless list of plays that will be remembered for a lifetime but for Oklahoma fans the top of that list will include Damien Williams dashing 95-yards to pay-dirt in a play that would make Red River Rivalry history.

Leading 6-2, Oklahoma faced a second and ten from their own five yard line and what happened next was pure Sooner elation.

Williams went on to finish the day with 167 yards and averaged 7.6 yards per carry in Oklahoma's 63-21 blowout of the 15th ranked Longhorns. The speed of Damien Williams, the downfield block by Kenny Stills, the elation by Oklahoma fans, and the dejection of the Texas fans will make October 13, 2012 a date that OU fans will remember for ages.
