6. 2004: OU 38-35. It all came down to Jason Ricks' 49-yard field goal with 15 seconds left. The kick sailed wide left.

7. 1969: OU 28, OSU 27. OU's Albert Qualls sacked OSU's Bob Cutberth on a 2-point conversion play with 1:15 left.

8. 1983: OU 21-20. The Sooners trailed 20-3 with 10 minutes left. But OU rallied with a series of weird plays, and OU's Tim Lashar kicked a 46-yard field goal to win it.

9. 2010: OU 47-41. In the final 200 seconds, OU's Landry Jones threw touchdown passes of 86 yards to Cam Kenney and 76 yards to James Hanna, sandwiched around Justin Gilbert's 89-yard kickoff return for a TD. And OSU also kicked a field goal during the late madness.

10. 1965: OSU 17-16. Lynn Chadwick's spectacular catch set up Charles Durkee's 35-yard field goal with 1:41 left, ending OU's 19-game Bedlam winning streak.
