WATCH: Dancing Longhorns DE suddenly realizes game-tying PAT missed
Even Texas coach Charlie Strong said he didn’t watch the failed extra point that prevented the Longhorns from Cal to overtime because he thought it automatic, so it’s hard to blame defensive end Charles Omenihu from doing a little sideline dance while thinking the game was seconds away from being tied at 45-45.
But everybody knows what happened. The extra-point attempt was a duck and sailed wide right, securing a 45-44 win for Cal after Texas and redshirt freshman quarterback Jerrod Heard, who Omenihu was celebrating with, had reeled off 20 unanswered points to get back in the game.
And really, who among the some 100,000 at Darrell K. Royal Stadium wasn’t doing the same dance at the same time?
