Bob Stoops wasn’t anywhere near the play, but Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Brian Orr played defense anyway.
Early in the fourth quarter, a fan ran onto the field, so Orr left his post as Stoops’ game day bodyguard and tackled the man on the field.
“That may be the most excited I’ve ever seen on a football field,” center Gabe Ikard said. “Theres’ certain moments you remember your Senior Day for. We rushed for 400 yards. I’m going to forget that we rushed for 400 yards before I forget Officer Orr just laid that dude out. That is fantastic.”
Even Stoops noticed the tackle but said he thought the trooper might get a penalty for “Targeting.”
