‘Pick’ me up

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - OU POSTGAME - BY JOHN HELSLEY, STAFF WRITER

OSU took a 49-42 lead with 3:47 re­main­ing, yet all who watch the Cow­boys ex­pect drama to the end. And drama they got, with the Cy­clones march­ing from their own 13 to the OSU 4 in­side the fi­nal minute. On sec­ond-and-goal from the 4, Noland lobbed a throw right for Marchie Mur­dock in the back corner of the end zone. Yet with Mur­dock draped on his back, Cow­boys cor­ner­back A.J. Green rose up for the in­ter­cep­tion, be­fore Mur­dock grabbed a share of the ball as they both crashed to the ground. Re­view con­firmed the in­ter­cep­tion, seal­ing the win. Mur­dock quickly took to Twit­ter: “I WAS ROBBED”
