Today, we began a week-long project looking at the most famous touchdowns from 100+ yards down to one yard, and we'll be taking a look at each of the Big 12 entrants on the blog throughout the week.
You can see the full project here.
After looking at two famous touchdowns that went against Big 12 teams earlier today, we're at the series' first entry that went a Big 12 team's way, igniting a rout for the Sooners.
Jan. 2, 1950: No. 2 Oklahoma entered the 1950 Sugar Bowl at 9-0, and former LSU player Piggy Barnes must have been worried about his Tigers, who entered at 8-1 and ranked No. 10. Barnes was caught spying on Oklahoma's practices with a telescope and camera, but it didn't work well. Leon Heath broke a scoreless tie in the second quarter with an 86-yard run and added a 34-yard run later in the quarter to send the Sooners to a 35-0 win and take home MVP honors.
