The SoonerNation staff is wrapping up Oklahoma's 10-3 season by answering 10 questions, just like we did during the Sooners' bye week in November. Today:

What was the Sooners' best play of the season?

Stills' clutch catch vs. Florida State
Jaz Reynolds’ one-handed catches at Kansas State were spectacular and Jamell Fleming’s strip and score against Texas was special. But no play impacted OU’s season like Kenny Stills’ fourth quarter touchdown grab over Greg Reid that beat Florida State. The Sooners eventually crashed and burned, but for half the season they were title contenders because of this play. (WATCH)

Tony Jefferson’s one-handed interception vs. Ball State
With his one-handed pick against the Cardinals, the sophomore showed the instincts and athleticism that will make him a cornerstone of OU’s defense. That interception was one of three straight interceptions on three consecutive BSU possessions. A unbelievable sequence for Jefferson. (WATCH)

Casey Walker’s sack and fumble against Texas
This might be the most disappointing 10-win season to a lot of fans, but a bright spot was how well the Oklahoma defense played in a 55-17 rout of rival Texas. It all got started in the first quarter by a big-time sack by Casey Walker, forcing a fumble and setting the tone. The OU defense scored three touchdowns against the Longhorns in the Red River Rivalry in the most complete game OU played in 2011. (WATCH)

Millard's 61-yard rumble to cap the K-State win
Looking back on Oklahoma's 10-3 season, the Sooners' most peculiar win came against scrappy, undefeated Kansas State in Manhattan. The week after the stunning home loss to Texas Tech, the Sooners shut out the Wildcats 35-0 in the second half and routed K-State 58-17. But it was the last score of the game that was capped the victory. Trey Millard lined up behind Landry Jones in the pistol formation, found a gaping hole over the left side, side-stepped a few Kansas State defenders and rumbled 61-yards down the sideline for the score. Who doesn't love fullback touchdowns? (WATCH)
