Oklahoma Vs. Missouri: Bizarre Punt Seals Oklahoma's Fate

Oklahoma had the ball, down nine, with no timeouts in hand and a fourth down mere feet from their own end zone. Clearly, the play was ... to punt?

Indeed, Oklahoma chose to kick away in that situation, and it made a nearly impossible comeback one that the Sooners declined to even attempt. Granted, there hadn't been much done in the first three downs of the series, but if any Sooner diehards need a hook to begin a postgame tirade, Bob Stoops definitely gave them one with that punt.

Missouri ran three times, then punted, and a final Oklahoma play went nowhere, securing the Tigers' 36-27 victory. It's Missouri's first win against Oklahoma since 1998.

And the Tigers, of all teams, are the only remaining undefeated team in the Big 12. So this is probably one of the sweeter wins in school history, too.
