USC fullback Marcus Allen picked up a big gain on the play above in September 1981 when Oklahoma traveled to Los Angeles and lost by a 24-28 score.
The Oklahoma Sooner football team kicks the extra point after their first touchdown against USC in September 1981.
The 2004 University of Oklahoma Homecoming parade (above) is as close as I've been to attending a college football game in several years. But with OU playing USC for the National Championship Jan. 4th, 2005, thought I would drag out my old photos from a trip to California planned around the Sept. 26, 1981 OU-USC game there. Noticed that the Orange Bowl is no longer played in the "Orange Bowl" stadium in Miami, but will be at Pro Player Stadium North of Miami (where the Florida Marlins and Miami Dolphins play). -- Ted
In a feeble attempt to give equal time to the Oklahoma State Cowboy football team, I could only come up with a 1980 photo of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, where two OSUs will battle in the Alamo Bowl Wednesday Dec. 29th, 2004 at 8pm. The other OSU being Ohio State. If an Okla. State fan would like to send me a good OSU photo (recent or historical) I'd be glad to update this page. -- Ted

Jan 5 Update: OU & OSU both had disappointing losses.
I was reminded watching the Jan 2005 Orange Bowl that the previous time OU-USC met as #1 & #2 was the 1981 game that OU lost in the final seconds. As bad as that seemed at the time it doesn't compare with last night's 19-55 embarassment as USC thumped the Sooners. -- Ted
