Video: Oklahoma robbed by baffling pass interference no-call
The Oklahoma Sooners were victimized by an awful non-call in the first quarter of the College Football Playoff semifinal.
Jalen Hurts attempted a pass to wide receiver Jadon Haselwood on a 3rd and 10. Defensive back Derek Stingley Jr. essentially dragged Haselwood down by the arm just as the pass arrived, but somehow, no flag was thrown.

The Sooners were furious, and understandably so. Had the play been flagged, the Sooners would have gotten a first down into LSU territory. Instead, they were forced to punt, and LSU went up 21-7 on the ensuing drive. There is no rule allowing for review of potential pass interference calls at the college level.
While this isn’t nearly as consequential as another high-profile pass interference miss, it’s a big moment in a big game. The Sooners will be very frustrated by this one.
