The Bow

OU & Nebraska staged "Game of the Century II" in 1987. The Huskers were ranked number 1 with a 10-0 record; The Sooners were ranked number 2 with a 10-0 record. Nebraska was confident, knowing that OU starting QB Jamelle Holieway would not be in the Sooner's starting lineup. Husker linebacker Broderick Thomas even promised a Nebraska victory. However, OU coach Barry Switzer pointed out that the Huskers had only scored 3 offensive TDs in the last 3 years against OU. After the teams forged a 7-7 tie in the 3rd qtr, Patrick Collins raced 65 yards for a TD with 1:39 left in the 3rd, and R.D. Lasher nailed a clinching field goal with 7:40 remaining in the game for a 17-7 OU victory. (11-21-87)
