With thirteen Big 12 championships over the last twenty years it would take up way too much time to pull a highlight from each one. Besides, some of those championships came at the hands of blowout wins over Colorado and Missouri and others were decided during the hiatus of the championship game. What we’ve done is narrowed down five moments that we believe are key moments in a championship game that will go down in Sooner lore as some of the all-time greatest moments. Are there some that we missed? Of course there are! Tell us about them in the comments section below!

#5 Josh Heupel to Andre Woolfolk in 2000

Oklahoma was stepping over the threshold of conference dominance in 2000. The Sooners came out of nowhere to stun nationally ranked Texas (#11), Kansas State (#2), and Nebraska (#1) to burst on the scene for a possible BCS championship game appearance. The final hurdle was a rematch with Kansas State at Arrowhead Stadium.

A back and forth game through the first three quarters, the Sooners and Wildcats exchanged leads three different times and were tied up two other times. As the fourth quarter began the two were gridlocked at 17-17 until Josh Heupel hit Andre Woolfolk with a 17-yard dart over the middle to put the Sooners up for good.

A 46-yard Tim Duncan filed goal, with a minute and some change left, give the Sooners a little insurance as well as the biggest lead of the night at 27-17. Kansas State would score one more time in the final seconds of the game but it would be too little too late as Oklahoma held on for a 27-24 win and a shot at Florida State in the Orange Bowl.
