Sam Bradford had his Heisman-defining moment Saturday night.

On third-and-goal from the 9, Bradford scrambled out of the pocket to his right.

With no receivers open, he tucked the ball and dove for the goal line. But before he could cross the pylon, Bradford was spun around in the air out of bounds at the 1.

"That showed he’s got heart,” tight end Jermaine Gresham said. "It shows he would do anything for this team to win.”

Bradford fumbled the snap on fourth down but picked it up and dove into the end zone to put OU ahead 37-26.

Bradford, who battled a left thumb injury during the game, had another big outing, throwing for 370 yards and four touchdowns.

Bradford set two records as well: passing yards by a Sooner in a season (4,082) and career touchdown passes (82).
