TCU gets robbed of upset bid against Oklahoma on controversial call
The Oklahoma Sooners 28-24 win over the TCU Horned Frogs ended in controversy Saturday night.
Losing 28-24 in the closing minutes, TCU needed to stop Oklahoma on a 3rd down and one, and it appeared the Horned Frogs defense got the huge stop; however, the officials on the field called Jalen Hurts’ quarterback keeper a first down. Even after the review, the ruling was somehow upheld and was called a first down for Oklahoma.
Judge for yourself:
This was ruled a first down by Jalen Hurts, clinching an Oklahoma win over TCU.

Obviously, had TCU stopped the Sooners on the play, it wouldn’t have won the game and may have not affected the outcome; however, the officials appeared to blow the call and did not even give TCU a chance to win it.
Jalen Hurts finished 11-of-21 for 145 yards and two touchdown through the air, while adding 173 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
With the win, OU stays alive in the College Football Playoff hunt. The Sooners’ chances were also increased Saturday when Arizona State upset No. 6 Oregon.
