The No. 9 Oklahoma Sooners sat on the brink of a 35-17 lead in the fourth quarter and then everything changed. Quarterback Jalen Hurts made a rare mistake and TCU Horned Frogs safety Vernon Scott made him pay in stunning fashion.

TCU’s senior defensive back read Hurts’ eyes and jumped the route at the two-yard line. After slipping away from the receiver, Scott followed a convoy downfield and into the end zone for a shocking, 98-yard pick-six.

There are swings of momentum in a game and there’s what Oklahoma’s fans just witnessed in Norman. A potential three-score lead was wiped away and turned into a four-point lead in a matter of seconds.

We’ve seen Oklahoma survive plenty of scares this season to keep their slim College Football Playoff hopes alive. Those odds might be vanishing after this stunning sequence.
