Former Oklahoma wide receiver Curtis Fagan was a key part to the Sooners’ 2000 national championship run. During his OU career he recorded 132 receptions for 1,656 yards and 13 touchdowns, but he helped make the 2000 season special as a sophomore.
Fagan recorded at least one catch in each of Oklahoma’s last twelve games of the season, including one against Florida State in the Orange Bowl/BCS Championship Game. He set the school record for touchdown catches in a season, with seven, and tied the record for touchdown receptions in a game (Jack Lockett 1950) with three.
A native of the state of Texas, Fagan helped the Sooners start a run of five consecutive wins against the arch rival Longhorns, beginning with a 63-14 win in Dallas, but his best day was saved for Oklahoma’s long-standing conference opponent.
Against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Fagan hauled in six catches (a career-high) for 98 yards, which was also a career-high for him.
