STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma players say they were unaware of an earthquake that happened during the second quarter of the No. 18 Sooners' 33-24 victory over Oklahoma State.

The U.S. Geological Survey recorded a 4.5 magnitude earthquake in central Oklahoma at 12:10 p.m. Saturday near Arcadia, about 7 miles east of Edmond and about 14 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

It occurred about the time Sooners' kicker Michael Hunnicutt kicked a 21-yard field goal in the second quarter of the win over the No. 6 Cowboys (10-2, 7-2 Big 12 Conference).

Hunnicutt says he didn't know about the earthquake and didn't feel it, while Oklahoma (10-2, 7-2) wide receiver Sterling Shepard says if he felt anything, he likely thought it was the result of the 58,520 in attendance in Boone Pickens Stadium.
