Recap
Marc Munford INT
Marc Munford returns a third-quarter interception to the Oklahoma 40 — but Nebraska fumbled on its next play.

Sooners stun Huskers with miracle finish

Tim Lashar’s 31-yard field goal with six seconds left capped an Oklahoma rally from a 17-7 deficit in the final 11 minutes and enabled the Sooners to claim their second-straight undefeated Big Eight title and a third-straight Orange Bowl berth.

OU drove 94 yards on 11 plays in 1:26 to tie the game at 17-all on a 17-yard touchdown pass from Jamelle Holieway to Keith Jackson with 1:22 left, forced a Nebraska punt, then got within field-goal range on a third-down, 41-yard pass from Holieway to Jackson with nine seconds to go.
