    The OU Bone. Rush for 600 yards, fumble twelve times and lose half of them ... in one game. Thomas Lott: "Yeah, we fumbled, but we didn't fumble enough to lose."

    OU and UT in the Cotton Bowl every year.

    The Sooners have rushed for over 500 yards in a game twenty-seven times.

    In 1980 they rushed for 758 yards in the process of defeating CU 82-42 at Folsom Field. OU was also 5 of 7 for 117 yards passing; 875 yards of total offense.

    That was the week after OU had lost to Stanford w/John Elway at Norman by a score of 14-31.

    They've rushed 400 yards or more ninety-one times.

    You had to see it to believe it.

      Oh I seen more then I cared to back in the 70s and 80s, being from Nebraska and a Cornhusker fan, Switzer and his wishbone would do it to the Blackshirts quite often.

      Barry was the guy who coined the phrase, "Let's hang a half hundred on them!" And they would, sometimes by HALFTIME!

      That Sooner magic would break Nebraskas heart plenty of times before Barry was forced out and Gibbs took over. Just think, they had Greg Pruitt, Joe Washington, Billy Sims, all just during the 70s!!!!!!!
