Sooners Stun Alabama

The mighty have fallen. Alabama had a chance to tie it with under a minute left, but a strip-sack for a touchdown led number-11 Oklahoma to a 45-31 victory at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. Trevor Knight threw for 348 yards, four touchdowns and an interception for the Sooners, who won their fourth bowl game in the last five seasons to close out the campaign at 11-and-2. Alabama, which had looked unstoppable until the final game of regular season, also finished with a record of 11 and 2. AJ McCarron tossed for 387 yards, two scores and two picks for the Crimson Tide, who had won the previous two BCS National Championships and four straight bowl games. Derrick Henry had a 61-yard receiving touchdown to go with a game-high 100 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground for ‘Bama, which ends the season with two straight losses.
