After a bunch of heavy-hitting games in Week 1, Week 2 was devoid of any matchups between two Top 25 teams.
I guess that means we’ve got to compensate with some upsets.
Central Michigan stunned No. 22 Oklahoma State on Saturday afternoon with what will be one of the best plays this season. With no time left on the clock thanks to a penalty the previous play, Central Michigan called and landed a Hail Mary, but the play wasn’t over there; the Chippewas then connected with a hook-and-ladder after the catch to get into the endzone, winning 30-27.
The penalty that cost Oklahoma State? An intentional grounding call when they had the ball on 4th-and-13. If they just eat the clock, the game is over. Instead, they literally threw the game away, and here’s the worst part: Central Michigan might have gotten their last play off due to a screw-up from the game officials.
This is Central Michigan’s first win over a ranked team since 1991, when they beat Michigan State.
After Oklahoma lost to Houston last week, thing continue to look bleak for the Big 12. At least they have Texas’s upset of Notre Dame to hang their hat on.
