Sooner Schooner Accident Briefly Delays West Virginia-Oklahoma

Oklahoma had a little extra time to marinate in Jalen Hurts’s two-yard touchdown run that put the team up three scores on West Virginia. An accident from the Sooner Schooner, a covered wagon pulled by two white horses that serves as the school’s mascot, created a couple of big divots in the field that had to be quickly patched up before the game could resume.
