Oklahoma earthquake during Oklahoma State Bedlam field goal

See also

The OSU vs. OU Bedlam 2013 football game got even more exciting today when during a 41-yard field goal attempt by OSU, the region experienced a 4.5 magnitude Oklahoma earthquake, according to a Dec. 7 Yahoo Sports report. In fact, Oklahoma State Cowboy Ben Grogan made the 41-yard field goal while the earth was moving and shaking in Boone Pickens Stadium.

It is possible that Grogan and the rest of the Cowboys did not even realize there had been an Oklahoma earthquake given the fact that the stadium was so rowdy despite the bone-chilling cold in Stillwater, OK for the annual Bedlam game.

The Oklahoma earthquake was centered in Jones, OK, which is about 52 miles Southeast of Boone Pickens Stadium and the Bedlam football game. There is no word on any immediate injuries or damage as a result of the 4.5 magnitude earthquake in Oklahoma this afternoon.

Tons of people took to Twitter to discuss the Oklahoma earthquake during Bedlam. Jake Trotter tweeted a series of tweets about the event. He said,

"Oklahoma St. just made a FG during an earthquake. #OUvsOKST. That is not a joke. The ground was moving as Ben Grogan was kicking that FG. #OUvsOKST."

OSU is no stranger earthquakes with a classic occurring right after the 2011 OSU vs. Kansas State game, and then another small earthquake when ESPN's College Game Day was in town just a couple of weeks ago.
