At least the players have a nice story about it for the rest of their lives.
The Oklahoma State football team’s Alamo Bowl champions rings have been unveiled, and the engraving seems a bit off.
The ring, which was revealed by Twitter user Boone Pickens State, has the record 11-2 engraved on the side. The issue is the Cowboys in 2016.
They lost two Big 12 games — to Baylor and Oklahoma — and an early non-conference game against Central Michigan. However, the Central Michigan loss in early September came with.
On what should have the game’s final play, quarterback Mason Rudolph heaved a pass downfield and out of bounds to ensure that the game clock would expire. The referees, however, ruled that the pass as an intentional grounding and awarded Central Michigan an untimed final play with the ball at the Chippewas’ 49 yard line.
The Chippewas completed a Hail Mary hook-and-ladder for a 51-yard score, giving Central Michigan a 30-27 victory.
The referees later admitted they awarded the Chippewas by mistake, meaning the game should have ended with Rudolph’s incomplete pass.later issued a statement about the loss, blaming his play call at the end of the game.
