2016 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 91 Days!

On November 10, 2007 the Oklahoma Sooners blew past the Baylor Bears by a final score of 52-21. One of the key figures in Oklahoma's onslaught that day was running back DeMarco Murray. Oklahoma fans grew used to Murray's home run speed throughout his career but this was still 2007 and he was just starting to make his mark on the program.

Murray averaged 7.3 yards per carry and ran for 95 yards on the day. He ended up scoring four touchdowns in the game, with three of them being rushing touchdowns and the other coming on this 91-yard kickoff return that showed both his youth (should have never let the ball get over his head) and his speed.

Video quality was terrible in 2007

Boosted by his 91-yard scamper, Murray ended the day with 129 total return yards which was good enough to place him with the fourth-highest total in OU football history.
