People Were Confused By Oklahoma State's Conservative Playcalling At The End Of Regulation

The Oklahoma State-Texas game is in overtime.

Many people watching it don't think it should be.

While the game has been a defensive struggled--the score is 10-10 at the end of regulation--Oklahoma State's decision to play it conservative at the end of regulation has draw the criticism of fans and media alike.

After Oklahoma State got the ball back at its own 8-yard-line with 1:07 remaining, many expected the Cowboys to try and push the tempo with their offensive weapons and look to win in regulation. Instead, after a first-down incompletion, Oklahoma State ran the ball four times in a row and punted.

Here is a sample of the reaction on Twitter:

A 34-yard field goal just put Oklahoma State up 13-10 in overtime.

They had better hold on, or head coach Mike Gundy and offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich will have some explaining to do.

Update: Oklahoma State escaped 13-10 after intercepting Sam Ehlinger in OT.

Exhale, Cowboys coaching staff.
