It couldn’t have come at a better time.
Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez had just connected with Travis Vokolek for a massive 38 yard gain to knock on Oklahoma’s doorstep. Two plays later, Martinez kept it himself for the score and narrowed the Sooners’ lead to 14-9.
Then Pat Fields happened. Oklahoma’s team captain took advantage of a blocked PAT to snag the momentum right back for the Crimson and Cream.

The result of the play was an unexpected two points for the Sooners as the offense marched down the field on a scoring drive punctuated by Kennedy Brooks.
