Running quarterback beat the Sooners with a 63-yard reception, the key play in a 20-10 Husker victory.

Befuddled by OU defense in the Orange Bowl, completing 25 of 51 passes for 274 yards with two interceptions in the Seminoles' 13-2 loss.

1986 Vinny Testaverde, Miami
Monster game in 28-16 Hurricane victory; 21 of 28 passing, for 286 yards and four TDs.

1971 Pat Sullivan, Auburn
A non-factor in the Sugar Bowl, completing 20 of 44 passes for 250 yards, one touchdown and one interception. OU jumped to a 40-6 lead and won 40-22.

1956 Paul Hornung, Notre Dame
The Irish's golden boy completed eight of 13 passes, but threw four interceptions as the Sooners rolled to an historic 40-0 victory.
