    Re: Interesting football article

    The Sooners started the quarter with a quick score and still with a lot of time on the clock, the Cyclones led 21-14. With the ball back in their hands, the Cyclones began moving, slowly but surely, down the field and the clock began to dwindle down. With a little under eight minutes remaining Iowa State scored again and had re-opened their two touchdown lead to 28-14.

    Clyde Williams Stadium began to roar with excitement. Everyone knew that Oklahoma couldn't throw the ball we began smelling the sweet smell of victory against one of the premier schools in the Big 8. Yes, a miracle was going to take place. But for Cyclone fans it would be a nightmare. OU's quarterback, Jack Mildren threw the ball with such accuracy; it was like he did it all the time. It was the eighth game of the year and Mildren had thrown about 15 passes all season. Against Iowa State, in that fourth quarter he would eclipse that total.

    With about five minutes left, OU had cut the score to 28-21. They surprised everyone in the stadium by not trying an on-side kick. Five minutes were all that separated Iowa State from having probably its biggest victory in school history. Now it was OU's defense that stepped up and stopped the Cyclones on three plays. The ensuing punt was a thing of beauty. The Sooners had the ball with three minutes to play and roughly 70 yards to go for a touchdown.

    Mildren continued his mastery of throwing the ball and OU moved the length of the field in a little over a minute. With one minute and 57 seconds left in the game, the Sooners scored on a 15 yard pass play. The stadium that for most of the day was loud, all of a sudden became quiet. Switzer would go for 2 points and the Sooners got it. The final score - Oklahoma 29 Iowa State 28.
    See they did it to there fans back in the 60's as well.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I know Dave Harm is a member here but I can't remember his username. His brother was a great player, though.

    Re: Interesting football article

    That's me and Wesley thanks for acknowledging my brother...

    I wrote this story in a hurry for a possible inclusion inot a Chicken Soup for the Soul book.

    Actually I wrote it to fast. Fairbanks was the coach, not Switzer. But it was still the best game I ever saw at Clyde Williams...

    Things would have been really, really different.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Interesting football article

    The thing that made that game so amazing, even in a loss was at the time there were no scholarship limits. About five years ago I heard Jack Mildren do an interview with Johnny Rodgers before a OU-kNU game and talking about their rivalry.

    Mildren said that when he was recruited he was one of five - five star QBs on OU.

    That was the game that put ISU on the map as far as being able to play with the big dogs...

    That brought back sad memories as I was sitting in the Clyde Williams that day when ISU should have beat Oklahoma.
