The Oklahoma Sooners are trying to play the role of spoiler in the Big 12 today as they try and ruin the unbeaten season hopes of their opponent, the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

It’s been a back and forth contest thus far, with the Sooners recently just taking the lead away from Tech.

But, it was how they took the lead back which is the interesting–and fun–part.

With time winding down in the third quarter, the Sooners were down 24-21 and needed to pull something out of their bag of tricks and they did just that.

They decided on using a double end-around using Lacoltan Bester, which actually ended up working for a 35-yard score and the lead. The thing is, though, Bester ran a lot more than 35 yards.

It’s more like Bester ran about 120 yards on that play, but the important part is that he got into the end zone.

The Sooners are currently holding on to a 35-24 lead early on in the fourth quarter, so they may be well on their way to breaking up the Red Raiders’ season.
