Some of you may have seen the flip in the air by OU quarterback Sam Bradford in the third quarter of the Bedlam football game between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. It ws awesome to see in person and made some cool pictures. Chris Landsberger captured this series as OSU’s Orie Lemon forces Bradford out at the one-yard line. Check it out:
