Quack Calls Do In the Sooners

Officially, Oregon defeated Oklahoma, 34-33. But the Ducks could not have prevailed without two calls in the final 66 seconds that went against the Sooners (video). The plays in question — an onside kick and a subsequent pass interference call — brought back memories of the Sooners' loss last season at Texas Tech, when a series of calls went against Oklahoma in a 23-21 loss. This latest gut-wrenching loss has Sooner fans in an uproar and the players believing that a victory was snatched away by the officials. Oregon players, of course, have a different opinion. Oklahoma did have a chance to win, but a field goal attempt was blocked on the final play. (Some registration).
