Skip Bayless Thinks The Refs Got The Controversial Bedlam Call Wrong

skip bayless talks about what Browns will do with he first overall pick.

Skip Bayless thinks the refs screwed up.

Oklahoma knocked off rival Oklahoma State 62-52 on Saturday, but it didn't come without some drama in the game's final minutes.

The Sooners, leading 55-52, appeared to pick off Cowboys quarterback Mason Rudolph to seal the deal with just under two minutes to play. But a targeting call on Oklahoma's Will Johnson negated the interception - giving the Pokes the ball back with a chance to take the lead.

The refs, after a long deliberation, determined that because the targeting happened before the ball was intercepted, the offensive team should retain the ball.

Skip Bayless disagreed. Mike Lupica agreed with the call.

Here's the play, if you haven't seen it:

In the end, it didn't matter. Oklahoma stopped Oklahoma State on downs and Sooners running back Trey Sermon put the dagger in on a 53-yard touchdown run in the final minute. But fans will still be talking about the call for some time.
