Brodrick Brown Video: Watch Crazy INT; Is This College Football Play of Year?

Tim WoodSenior Writer INovember 28, 2010

We've all dreamed of the play.

I've done it diving into a pool a couple of times and once or twice in a flag football game.

Oklahoma State defender Brodrick Brown saved the most heads-up, most acrobatic play you'll see all year for the all-eyes-on-him glare of the Bedlam spotlight.

Landry Jones probably thought he was just throwing a ball away on the run. Brown had other ideas as he planted his feet and tipped the ball back in bounds.

Two miracles had to happen for the play to even be pulled off. First, there's the madness of Brown. Then there's Shaun Lewis having the wherewithall to even be looking for such a tip.

The sad part of the play is that in the end, it will go down as just a happy footnote to a devastating night for the Oklahoma State Cowboys program.

Oklahoma went on the road and pulled out a 47-41 victory. The win forces a three-way tie in the Big 12 South between OU, the Cowboys and Texas A&M. The BCS rankings announced Sunday night will decide the tie -- and the Sooners are the likely victor.

They'll head to Dallas next week to play Nebraska in what will likely be the last Big 12 Championship for a while. The team is dropping to 10 teams next year and won't play a title game.

As for Brown, he'll have to settle for a second-tier bowl and a guaranteed trip to the ESPYs.
