The run-oriented Sooners are forced to rely on the pass in an exciting fourth quarter comeback that secures a third place finish for Oklahoma in the final polls. With Florida State ahead by seven and 3:19 remaining in the game, Oklahoma quarterback J.C. Watts brings the Sooners back. Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer gambles and goes for two points and the victory instead of settling for the sure tie. Florida State, in Bobby Bowden’s fifth year with the Seminoles, finishes fifth in the polls after going 0-11 only seven years earlier. This game also marks the first time officials wore microphones in a college bowl game. You will hear numerous players talking and the referees discussing plays as they both adjust to this new on-field technology. This is a professional version of the original broadcast, commercial free. Running time is 2 hours 27 minutes. You’ll see these legendary players: J.C. Watts, David Overstreet, Buster Rhymes, Steve Rhodes, Ron Simmons and watch coaches Barry Switzer and Bobby Bowden battle it out.
