Oklahoma football: Blake Bell's 'Belldozer' leads Sooners into end zone, overtime

Blake Bell saw one Cowboy in his way on and he thought to himself, ‘There is no way he's going to stop me.' That guy was Oklahoma State's No. 19 Brodrick Brown, who was ready to stop Bell and give the Sooners a second-straight loss in the Bedlam rivalry.

The Belldozer's bad luck returned in the third quarter when the Sooners were driving deep in OSU territory. Bell handed off to Trey Millard who fumbled and the Cowboys recovered. That was the only appearance in the third quarter.

Bell converted twice on fourth down in the fourth quarter. Then with under 10 second remaining, the backup quarterback blocked, ran over and carried the Cowboys into the end zone with him for the final score of regulation.

"I thought we had him in the backfield on the tying touchdown," OSU coach Mike Gundy said. "Again, he's a big guy and he's made some guys miss and breaks tackles."

That wasn't the last appearance of Bell in the end zone, though. In overtime, after running back Brennan Clay scored the game-winning touchdown, Bell joined the crowd of crimson jerseys that surrounded Clay and celebrated.

None of it would have happened, though, had the Belldozer not converted on what will go down as Bell's favorite play of his career.

“Oklahoma State. 10 seconds left. Fourth-and-1,” Bell said. “That's why I came here to the University of Oklahoma. To play games like this.”
