Sooner Magic

The term "Sooner Magic" was originally coined to refer to the Oklahoma/Nebraska football series while Barry Switzer was head coach. During the time period, Switzer's Sooners played the Cornhuskers 17 times, winning 12 of the meetings, eight of which were the result of a fourth-quarter comeback. Now, the term is often used to refer to the Sooners' success playing in Norman.
