Yards to Glory: Kelly secures a Big 12 title

8/2/2011

Monday we began a week-long project looking at the most famous touchdowns from 100+ yards down to one yard, and we'll be taking a look at each of the Big 12 entrants on the blog throughout the week.

You can see the full project here.

Oklahoma and Nebraska met in the Big 12 title game just twice, despite making a combined 14 appearances, but Malcolm Kelly scored the greatest 66-yard touchdown in college football history in the 2006 classic.

Dec. 2, 2006: Oklahoma went 99 yards in 11 plays to ice its 21-7 win in the Big 12 championship, capped by Malcolm Kelly's second touchdown of the game. Coach Bob Stoops called it the drive of the year, but Kelly's first touchdown puts him on this list. Kelly caught a pass from Paul Thompson at the Huskers' 20-yard line, eluded a tackler and scored a 66-yard touchdown to put Oklahoma up 14-0 with a one-play drive.
