While the Big Blue Nation was tuning in for the start of Kentucky vs Harvard on Saturday, Oklahoma was wrapping up the Big 12 Championship. As some of you may know, the Sooners high-powered offense features former Kentucky standout Jeff Badet. Badet transferred to Oklahoma during the offseason and he has helped the Sooners to victories in some of their biggest games this season.
In the Ohio State game earlier this season, he had 82 yards including this spectacular catch down the stretch to help put the nail in the coffin.

Against Oklahoma’s biggest rival, Texas, Badet finished with 59 yards and a touchdown. Although, his season stats don’t quite stack up to last year’s numbers at Kentucky, it’s safe to say it’s been a successful season for the former Wildcat.
In all likelihood Badet and the Sooners will be heading to the College Football Playoff for a chance to win their first title since Mark Stoops’ brother, Bob, did it in 2000. It’ll be nice to see a wildcat in the playoffs.
Also, he hit a pretty sweet backflip after the win.

Good luck to Jeff Badet.
