Football Matters

Ohio State and Oklahoma are two of college football's most iconic programs, but their game Saturday in Norman will be just the third meeting between schools that have produced 12 Heisman Trophy winners and even more national championships.

The first game was September 24, 1977, in Columbus, with the Buckeyes ranked fourth and the Sooners third. It turned out to be a classic as Oklahoma won 29-28 on Uwe von Schamann's 41-yard field goal with three seconds left.

The Sooners had jumped to a 20-0 lead. The Buckeyes rallied and were ahead 28-20 with 1:30 left. Then Oklahoma scored a touchdown and recovered an onside kick to set up von Schamann for a chance to win it.
