For National Championship

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.

football team kicks the extra point after their first touchdown against
USC in September 1981.
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
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
5 Update: OU & OSU both had disappointing losses.
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
