Oklahoma football: Brennan Clay takes a seven-minute journey of jubilation

Linebacker Corey Nelson stopped him and started a dance circle surrounding Clay.
“That's how you end it,” Nelson yelled.
Clay beamed and continued walking until he was greeted by wide receiver Kenny Stills.
Just seconds after Stills subtly kissed Clay on the forehead, an ecstatic Tony Jefferson came running toward Clay shouting, “Yes! Yes!” He knocked Clay to the ground, which OSU defenders failed to do minutes earlier. And that's when the Cali Trio dog piled at the 40-yard line of Owen Field.
More Sooners rushed in — Damien Williams, Blake Bell, Landry Jones and Justin Brown, and for the second time of the night, Clay was the center of the Sooners' circle.
The cheering and hugging and congratulating continued. Every player who saw Clay that hadn't seen him yet grabbed him and embraced.
A stunned group of Oklahoma State cheerleaders watched wide-eyed, tucked against the brick walls of the stadium, as Clay walked past.
He soaked in his biggest moment in Oklahoma history and his smile never disappeared.
As Journey's “Don't Stop Believing” filled Oklahoma's stadium, the star of Saturday walked into the tunnel with his coach's arm around him.
