Things seemed to be getting back on track for the 2012 Oklahoma Sooners. They had lost to Kansas State, who came in and snapped their 39-game home winning streak, sat 2-1, but had won three in a row to move to 5-1, with blowouts in all three including Texas.
The Sooners were No. 8 in the country and back in the title discussion. Then came in No. 5 Notre Dame.
More than 86,000 fans packed the Gaylord Memorial Stadium in Norman, Okla. that day to watch two of the best college football teams in the sports’ history.
The Sooners (3-0, 1-0 Big 12 Conference) took the first lead 3-0, and was up at halftime 10-6, but it all fell apart in the final quarter. Notre Dame would score 24-fourth quarter points. Blake Bell ran in an 1-yard touchdown to tie the game at 13, but the Irish (3-1) would score 21-unanswered points in a matter of 3:29 to put the game out of hand.

We don't know much because the Sooners have used two quarterbacks, played two distinct offenses and three below average opponents.
Now comes Notre Dame and the answers are sure to follow.
The game is Saturday and that's too long to wait for answers. Here...
Let's take a closer look at the stories that will shape Week 5 in the Big 12.
The top spot might be up for grabs:Baylor's off this weekend, but considering what we've seen so far from West Virginia, a loss or narrow win on the road in Morgantown might open up the debate for the Big 12's best team. That's especially true if Oklahoma wins big at Notre Dame. That...
