Oklahoma sealed its Big 12 title title when Kyler Murray and Grant Calcaterra hooked up for an 18-yard touchdown connection with two minutes remaining in regulation. It was a beautiful throw and catch and put the Sooners closer to the College Football Playoff.
It also shouldn’t have counted.
As Chris Fowler astutely points out, Oklahoma only had six men on the line of scrimmage.
Oh well. Counting is hard.
This is not to take anything away from Lincoln Riley’s team. They outplayed Texas for most of the afternoon, and came up big defensively when it mattered.
Just something for Texas fans to stew about for nine months, when the next meaningful football will happen.
