Should Big 12 officials have overturned OSU's INT vs. Texas? 'You have to stop it there'

With Texas leading 21-7 to start the second quarter of the Big 12 Championship Game on Saturday, OSU quarterback Alan Bowman was intercepted on a deep throw into Texas territory.

Intended for Rashod Owens, the pass was picked off by Texas’ Kitan Crawford at the 5-yard line.

But the ball hit the ground and moved slightly as Crawford cradled the ball. However, there was no stoppage for an official review.

ESPN's announcing crew of Sean McDonough and Greg McElroy were perplexed by the lack of a thorough review.

"You have to stop it there. It's too impactful of a play," McElroy said, a sentiment echoed by the rest of the crew.

Of OSU’s first four possessions, two have ended with punts and one with a touchdown prior to the interception.
