Saturday’s Kansas-Oklahoma football game was full of quirks.
There was the power outage that temporarily knocked out the scoreboard information, the stadium gates were open to everyone in the second half and Oklahoma took the 35-23 victory thanks to the Sooners quarterback. who stole the ball from his teammate.
A neglected piece was by KU quarterback Jason Bean, who inexplicably ran out of bounds from the goal line despite a header blocker that would have allowed him to score.
On ESPN’s “Monday Night Countdown”, Bean was mentioned in a regular segment called “C’mon Man.”
Each week, Suzy Kolber, Adam Schefter, Randy Moss, Steve Young, and Booger McFarland choose college and NFL plays in which something strange happened.
“Wait, how much money is NIL in danger here?” Young asked about Bean. “Hey, bro, you got a header tackle in the end zone, you don’t go out at 1.”
A Big 12 official was also mentioned for a call on Saturday to 24-21 victory for Iowa State over Oklahoma State. Wide Receiver Cyclones Xavier hutchinson was called an excessive celebration, erasing a touchdown.
Iowa state broadcasters called it the worst penalty in NCAA history. Are they wrong?
Moss also couldn’t believe the call.
âHey, referee, you just stole the touchdown,â Moss said.
Here is the whole segment broadcast on ESPN:
