The play came when OU quarterback Landry Jones passed to Stills at the three-yard line on the left side of the field. Gilbert looked like he was going to pick off the pass, but it went straight through his hands, hit Stills on his chest pads, popped into the air and eventually into Stills’ hands as he fell into the end zone for the touchdown that tied it before halftime.
“I was pretty frustrated since I dropped the first touchdown,” the junior wide receiver said. “I’m pretty hard on myself about dropping balls and dropping touchdowns.
“I just wanted to do everything I could to get in the end zone this time. (Gilbert) did a good job of playing defense. He could have had a pick but it went through his hands and I made the play.”
Stills said that is the first time in his playing career that he ever had a pass that he somehow tipped to himself for a touchdown.
“I just happened to keep my focus on it,” Stills said.
As for making the No. 1 play of the day in SportsCenter’s Top 10, Stills found out when he got some texts while he was out that night.
“That doesn’t really change anything I guess,” Stills said about the highlight. “Just helped us win.”
