STILLWATER — Many people are already referring to it as the Play of the Year.

Oklahoma State cornerback Brodrick Brown's play during the Cowboys' 47-41 loss to Oklahoma will be remembered long after the 2010 Big 12 champion is crowned.

The redshirt sophomore jumped into the air, out of bounds, to bat a Landry Jones pass back to teammate Shaun Lewis for one of the most improbable interceptions in recent memory. It was the No. 1 play on ESPN SportsCenter's top-10 plays countdown on Saturday night.

Asked if he'd ever seen a play like that, OSU coach Mike Gundy was quick with his response:

“No. I have not,” he said. “I'm sure I have, but I don't remember one like that.

“Pretty amazing wasn't it?”

Brown's play is nowhere to be found on the official box score, but a quick YouTube or Google search reveals the impact. As of Sunday night, a clip of Brown's play had already received over 884,000 views.

With one play, he's gone from the guy who replaced Perrish Cox in the Cotton Bowl to YouTube sensation.

What made the play special was Brown's recognition of his positioning on the field and awareness to intentionally bat the ball directly to his teammate. And the awareness of Lewis to react to Brown's play and catch the ball also cannot be overlooked. Nobody realized what the duo had done until the play was done.
