In 2015, the Oklahoma Sooners possessed one of the most potent offenses in the country. Facing a string of opponents, that team recorded a four game stretch of 50+ points — something untouched since the 2008 team. As the fourth in string of overmatched opponents, the Iowa State Cyclones simply stood no chance against the No. 15 ranked program.
Up 21-9 at the half, Oklahoma exploded in the third quarter behind the play of Baker Mayfield. Dropping back to pass, the quarterback rolled to his right looking for an open man. Slinging the ball into the air, Mayfield found Sterling Shepard behind the defense. Although the ball was under thrown, no defender put a hand on Shepard. The pass led to a 74-yard touchdown.
It was the second play of 70+ yards from Mayfield on the evening which extending the Sooners’ lead to 37-9. Yet, it was also the play that put the Heisman hopeful over the 3,000 yard mark for his career.
