There's no way around it. Each and every year, when the countdown to kickoff hits the unforgettable number of 77-days a specific game comes to mind. The 77-0 rout of the Texas A&M Aggies!

I certainly don't miss the days before HDTV

As the top ranked Oklahoma Sooners took the field, the offense would score on the first 10-of-11 drives against the Texas A&M Aggies. The final score of the game came on a Derrick Strait scoop and score from 17 yards out. Scoring all of their points in the first three quarters, Bob Stoops refused to let the game become even more lopsided.

In the fourth quarter, the Sooners found themselves knocking on the door of the end zone once again. From three yards out, Oklahoma ran the ball four straight times up the middle. While the line basically fell over, each attempt from Donta Hickson remained unsuccessful in crossing the goal line.

Defensively, OU shut out their opponent while allowing a mere 54 total yards of offense.
