Oklahoma players unaware of earthquake during game
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
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.
