Play of the game
On a third-and-goal from inside BYU's 1-yard line, the Cougar defense stopped Sooner quarterback Landry Jones on a quarterback sneak, forcing Oklahoma into settling for a field goal instead of a getting a touchdown that would have put the Sooners up by two scores.
On a third-and-goal from the 7-yard line, BYU quarterback Max Hall knew Oklahoma expected a pass underneath to tight end Dennis Pitta. Instead, Hall went to wide receiver McKay Jacobson, who was open in the back of the end zone for the game-winner.
"Our intent was to play worthy of the opportunity, and I believe that they did that." — Bronco Mendenhall, BYU coach
