Landry Jones celebrates another big play

The highly anticipated rematch of the 2001 Orange Bowl national championship game between Oklahoma and Florida State was all that it was hyped to be.

With two high powered offenses going against defenses that had question marks, a shootout was predictable. Long drives, big plays, and a plethora of points were the order of the day and it didn't disappoint.

Each team took their opening drives the length of the field for a score and fans settled back, ready for a shootout.

And then the Seminoles discovered their equipment manager had left the spare ammo back in Tallahassee.

While Oklahoma continued to fire away with a .44 magnum, scoring at will, Florida State emptied their clip and tried to fight back with a potato gun.

While there were plenty of points scored, they were all racked up on the home team's side. OU's offense continued to hum along like a well-oiled machine while FSU's offense sputtered and backfired, virtually grinding to a stop while the contest was decided.

Oklahoma scored the final 27 points of the first half to squash the hopes of FSU and send the dejected visitors into the locker room knowing the game was over before the third quarter had even started.
