Oklahoma touchdown on final play impacts over-under (Video)

Eric Striker touchdownOklahoma beat Oklahoma State 33-24 on Saturday in their “Bedlam” rivalry game, and a wild touchdown on the final play of the game affected the over-under total.

Oklahoma was down 24-20 after the Cowboys scored with 1:47 left. Blake Bell led them down the field and threw a touchdown pass to Jalen Saunders to give the Sooners a 27-24 lead with 19 seconds left. Oklahoma State knew they were pretty much toast and that 19 seconds weren’t enough to move the ball the entire way down the field, so they tried a desperate trick play on their last play with two seconds left in the game.

Clint Chelf completed a pass to Jhajuan Seales, who lateraled to Josh Stewart. Stewart lateraled to Desmond Roland, who heaved it behind him as he was about to be tackled. Oklahoma’s Eric Striker picked up the fumble and returned it for the score to put Oklahoma up 33-24 on the final play.

What’s interesting is that the over-under total closed at 57 or 56.5 at most sportsbooks, meaning that final play took a game that was looking like a lock to go under and made it either push or go over.
