Sooner Magic
Legendary game-winning moments in
Oklahoma Football history
By:
Uwe von Schamann
and Jim Fletcher

As the winningest-team in modern college football history, the University of Oklahoma has enjoyed more than its share of dramatic moments on the gridiron. Fans fondly recall them today - literally on a constant basis, thanks to internet chat rooms, YouTube, and periodicals such as Sooners Illustrated magazine.

With an embarrassment of football riches, the program - winner of seven national championships, 41 conference championships, and four Heisman Trophies - etched another facet into its studded crown when "Sooner Magic" was coined in 1976. Faced with an almost certain defeat against arch-rival Nebraska on a cold day in Lincoln, OU used stunning trick plays to march the length of the field for the winning touchdown with a half-minute left.

Although no one is quite sure who actually coined the term "Sooner Magic," it has become intensely meaningful in the intervening years, with dramatic comeback wins against Nebraska three more times; a pulsating win at Texas A&M in the national championship year of 2000; and of course, kicker Uwe von Schamann's iconic field goal to defeat Ohio St. at Columbus in 1977.

Co-authored with von Schamann, this book will be filled with photos and little-known facts about the greatest moments in Sooner history, and will feature dozens of comeback wins, beginning with Arkansas on October 24, 1899 right up to Roy William's "Superman" play versus Texas in 2001!
