The 2008 season featured one of the most memorable and entertaining Bedlam football games in quite some time. Oklahoma's high-powered offense was in the middle of a string of five consecutive games where they scored 60-plus points and the Cowboys were almost able to match the Sooners blow for blow...at least until the final few minutes of the game.

Quarterback Sam Bradford led Oklahoma's offensive charge with 370 passing yards and four touchdowns. Tight end Jermaine Gresham was Bradford's top target as he hauled in nine receptions for 158 yards and two scores. On the ground the Sooners averaged 4.5 yards per carry, and scored four touchdowns, led by Chris Brown who carried the ball 19 times for 98 yards, and crossed the goal line twice.

In all, Oklahoma's offense racked up 551 total yards of offense on their way to a 61-41 victory that not only clinched another Big 12 championship but also earned the Sooners a berth in the BCS championship game.
