Brooks broke free to sprint to the end zone, while the Sooners (6-0, 3-0 Big 12), appeared to be trying set up for a game ending field goal.
Oklahoma was still behind when Brooks scored an 18-yard touchdown with 7:10 remaining that made it 48-41. After OU tied the game, Brooks’ rush was the first play of scrimmage. He kicked off to Xavier Worthy who was stripped of the ball by Caleb Kelly.
