Bye Week Breakdown: OU's best play

November, 7, 2011
With Oklahoma on a bye week, the SoonerNation staff is spending the week looking back on the Sooners' first nine games by answering 10 questions. View the archives here.

What was Oklahoma's best play through the first nine games?

Stills' clutch catch vs. Florida State
Kenny Stills waited and waited. Finally, Landry Jones’ lob pass at Florida State came sailing down to him in the end zone. Stills, who had beaten Seminoles cornerback Greg Reid, came back, reached up and pulled down the ball over Reid. The 37-yard touchdown broke the fourth-quarter tie and lifted the Sooners to a 23-13 victory. (WATCH)

Broyles breaks the record vs. Kansas
It was the perfect way to break the NCAA all-time reception record for Ryan Broyles. He streaked down the seam before catching the ball and cruising into the end zone. He finished the game with 13 receptions for 217 yards and two touchdowns. (WATCH)

Walker sets the tone vs. Texas
Defensive tackle Casey Walker’s sack and forced fumble on Texas quarterback Case McCoy was a harbinger of things to come for the Longhorns on that day in the 55-17 win for OU in the Red River Rivalry. Walker came from the inside and leveled McCoy in a game where OU finished with eight sacks and scored three defensive touchdowns. At the time, OU was only up 3-0 with more than nine minutes left in the first quarter. It showed what happens when the OU defense is motivated. (WATCH)

Finch's first quarter scamper vs. Texas Tech
Though the Texas Tech game will be remembered as the end of Oklahoma's 39-game home winning streak, it also produced the Sooners' most electrifying play of the season. On OU's first offensive play, sophomore Roy Finch, filling in for starter Dominque Whaley who had flu-like symptoms, took the handoff from Landry Jones through the five-hole, put a devastating spin move on the Red Raiders free safety, and then ran across the field for 55 yards to the Texas Tech 14-yard line. Though it will be mostly forgotten, Finch's run signified his return as the explosive back fans saw when he was a freshman. (WATCH)
