NORMAN — Befitting his patent versatility, running back DeMarco Murray broke Oklahoma's all-time touchdown record with three very different scoring plays.
A 1-yard leap over the pile.
A 15-yard screen pass.
A 10-yard weaving rush through defenders.
With his three touchdowns in Saturday's 52-0 rout of Iowa State, Murray passed Steve Owens' 41-year-old record for most career touchdowns in Sooner history.
Owens, the 1969 Heisman Trophy winner, scored 57 touchdowns. Murray now has 58, and counting.
â€œYou talk about a special record,â€ said coach Bob Stoops. â€œWhen you look at all the great players we've had, All-Americans, the special, special running backs.
â€œFor him to have that record is really special.â€
On top of his three touchdowns, Murray added 112 rushing yards, his 13th career 100-yard rushing performance.
â€œGetting the record feels great,â€ Murray said. â€œMeans a lot.â€
