ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Travis Lewis had an interception in the end zone and recovered two fumbles as No. 10 Oklahoma rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat Nebraska 23-20 on Saturday night in the Big 12 championship, the Cornhuskers’ last game in the conference.
Landry Jones threw for 342 yards and a touchdown and also sneaked in for another score from 1 yard out as the Sooners (11-2) made the biggest comeback in Big 12 championship history to earn a spot in the Fiesta Bowl.
The Cornhuskers (10-3) self-destructed in their final game as a Big 12 member, squandering a 17-0 lead with four turnovers and getting shut out in the second half for the first time all season.
Jimmy Stevens delivered the game-winner, a 27-yard field goal, with 8:28 to play.
