Oklahoma Sooners fans are furious with what's being described as a "dirty" block by a Texas Tech player in the second half of today's game.

Kennedy Brooks, a Sooners running back, took a low hit to his knee on a late block by a Red Raiders' defender following an interception.

Unfortunately, it looks like Brooks might have suffered an injury on the play.

Sooners fans are furious with the hit.

"Here's the low block on Brooks. If it looks dirty, that's because it is," RJ Young tweeted.

Brooks was able to walk off the field under his own power, but he was clearly hampered by the hit. Oklahoma fans think the Texas Tech player, Eli Howard, should've been ejected. "Man, that would be a sucky injury for Kennedy Brooks. What a garbage block from Tech," one fan tweeted. "What a completely unnecessary and dirty block by Texas Tech on that return. Hope Brooks is alright but that looked terrible," another fan added. "Texas Tech’s Eli Howard ought to be tossed for that cheap shot low block on a defenseless Kennedy Brooks. Could have ended his season," another fan tweeted.

Oklahoma is leading Texas Tech, 41-13, midway through the third quarter. The game is on FOX.
