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.

“You talk about a special record,” said coach Bob Stoops. “When you look at all the great players we've had, All-Americans, the special, special running backs.

“For him to have that record is really special.”

On top of his three touchdowns, Murray added 112 rushing yards, his 13th career 100-yard rushing performance.

“Getting the record feels great,” Murray said. “Means a lot.”
