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.
