Any hope of Oklahoma inserting itself back into the BCS title hunt vanished on Saturday with a 30-13 loss to Notre Dame at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. The Irish made plays when they needed them and the Sooners did not as OU suffered its second home loss of the season. Here is a closer look at several key plays in the loss:

J.P. Wilson/Icon SMINotre Dame quarterback Everett Golson beat the Sooners through the air and with his feet.
This was a critical play for many reasons. (1) OU had cruised down the field for the second straight possession to open the game and didn’t want to have just three points to show for it. (2) It was an opportunity for the Sooners offense to gain confidence they could make key plays when they needed them against the Irish. (3) It was an early sign that ND was comfortable dropping in coverage to try to stop OU.
