The Oklahoma State Cowboys are currently locked up with Texas Tech, 34-34, but they shouldn’t be. The Red Raiders were given a gift when Cowboys kicker Matt Ammendola hit the right upright from 19 yards out following a goal-line stand by the Texas Tech defense.
Interestingly, that pesky right upright was the cause of another missed field goal by Ammendola earlier in the game, from 22 yards out.
Holy crap! Off the same upright TWICE??? pic.twitter.com/A7jsIYi9QH

Well, he doinked one in the first half, too. Off same upright, same end of the field.

Me: "why tf are they kicking a field goal that close, he's gonna hit the pole again"

That doink sound when the ball hit the upright sounds amazing

Pretty impressive the pokies can hit the upright twice in a game. V accurate

This Oklahoma State kicker really doesn't want me to win money tonight. Two missed FG and one was on the 2 yard line. pic.twitter.com/Qe79Yb9wxA

Hope some random stat database tracks kicks to upright and miss. Twice in a game has to be among few games.
