There aren’t many effective defenses for preventing a field goal — other than relying on #collegekickers — but an earthquake might be the best one yet.

As Oklahoma State’s Ben Grogran lined up to attempt a 41-yard kick midway through the second quarter of Saturday’s game against Oklahoma, a 4.5-magnitude earthquake hit just north of Oklahoma City. That didn’t stop Grogan from drilling the field goal to give the Cowboys an early 10-7 lead over the Sooners.

Bedlam, indeed.

Earthquakes do happen regardless of what humans do.  Just saying.

Judging by the response below my last comment...when your migrant roughnecks frack the last crack and open up that fault line...may it biblically swallow you all up ....

Gee, I wonder if that was caused by the "fracking" in OK or surrounding area?

@drudown Google Gas Land Hoax and inaccuracies...  OMG there were earth quakes in Oklahoma before fracking...there must be secret aliens fracking in our midst.

@Action    What's amazing?  That a field goal was made during an earthquake or that drudown took this opportunity to go off on alternative sources of energy?

@JoleneBlow So you want a war, and lump half the country into a pool you generically assume is vile and hateful? Maybe take a look at yourself first?
