A thunderstorm is approaching Owen Field.
And now we know how a game against a bad opponent can get even worse.
Halftime has just been extended 20 minutes to see what happens, and a lighting bolt just knocked out about half of the lights at Owen Field. A check of weather reports on the internet indicate that a storm with heavy rain, possible hail and winds to 50 mph is approaching Norman. Worse, the storm is moving at a whopping 5 mph.
That means it could get here and drench Owen Field.
What is already a difficult game to watch could get even worse.
Here’s a bet: the teams won’t come out of the locker rooms again. This game will be called and Oklahoma declared the winner. No one benefits by this game continuing.
