3:43 | 2nd qtr. On a long pass down the field, the field judge was stationary on the goal line. The line judge is responsible for forward progress up until the 2 yard-line, but the receiver ran out of bounds at the 3. Great communication for the field judge to confirm the catch, then allow the line judge to grab the spot at the 3.

At halftime, Oklahoma leads 14-13. Auburn has committed 4 fouls for a total of 33 penalty yards; Oklahoma has committed 7 for a total of 65. Nothing out of the ordinary, and the Big Ten crew is enforcing penalties smoothly and keeping a good game flow.

12:39 | 3rd qtr. Oklahoma TD — Dede Westbrook 7 yd. pass from Baker Mayfield (Austin Seibert kick). OU 21-13

10:02 | 3rd qtr. Auburn defender Javaris Davis is flagged for a pass interference. Great call, as he restricted the receiver from getting to the spot downfield by grabbing his jersey and not playing the ball.

Good flag pick up on the OPI. Under NCAA rules, if the ball is caught behind the line of scrimmage there are no restrictions for pass interference.

2:28 | 3rd qtr. Oklahoma TD — Joe Mixon 4 yd. run (Austin Seibert kick). OU 28-13

2:28 | 3rd qtr. Oklahoma back Joe Mixon leaps for the pylon and is called short. Replay reverses the call to a touchdown after more views show the ball inside the pylon before Mixon touched out of bounds. This was probably missed on field because Mixon’s body was between the official and his view of the ball in relation to the pylon.

0:36 | 3rd qtr. An unsportsmanlike foul on Oklahoma’s Geno Lewis occurred after Lewis picked up a first down for spinning the ball. Since the ready-for-play had not yet occurred, but the foul occurred in a dead ball segment, Oklahoma kept a first down, but the chains were set at the ready, so they started the next series of downs 1st and 10.

Under NCAA rules, any unsportsmanlike conduct counts toward disqualification (2 needed for DQ).

Dominant win by Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. Excellent job by O’Neill and crew to be smooth and efficient.
