It was recovered by linebacker Frank Shannon, who returned it inside the Horned Frogs' 10-yard line; officials, though, initially ruled an incomplete pass. Upon review, the call was overturned.

“I knew it was a fumble because I saw his arm,” Washington said. “They said it was gonna be reviewed, and I was like, ‘OK, it's our ball.' I was telling everybody, ‘It's fine. It's us. He fumbled; I promise you.'”

Washington said the only thing that confused him was the subsequent spot of the ball. Because officials had blown the play dead, OU took possession where Shannon recovered the fumble, not where he returned it.

“They should've just let that go, even though Frank's slow and got caught on the sideline, but whatever,” Washington said with a laugh.
