Oklahoma: Big 12 Champions!

After Oregon, after Texas, did you give up?

Shame on you. :-):

Paul Thompson threw two touchdown passes to Malcolm Kelly and led the longest scoring drive in Big 12 championship history, leading Oklahoma to a 21-7 victory over No. 19 Nebraska on Saturday night.

Oklahoma also set the Big 12 championship record for fastest score. The game set an Arrowhead Stadium all-time attendance record at just over 80,000 fans, too.

Fun trivia: At Nebraska, Bill Callahan is now 0-12 when trailing at halftime.

The Sooners are now headed to the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, at the brand new Cardinals Stadium in Glendale, AZ. Kickoff time is 7:45 PM on Fox (not FSN, but regular “home of The Simpsons” Fox) in high-definition. Ticket information is available online. We’ll have links to Pride photos and schedules as they become available.

For the 40th time, the Sooners are conference champions!
