The Oklahoma Sooners find themselves in quite a hole just one half into their College Football Playoff semifinal against the LSU Tigers.
But a blatant pass interference missed by the officials added insult to the ugly first half for the Sooners.
Late in the first quarter, Sooners wide receiver Jadon Haselwood cut towards the sideline at the Oklahoma 40 looking to pull in a pass from quarterback Jalen Hurts. Instead, LSU cornerback Derek Stingley grabbed his right shoulder and dragged him to the turf before he could get back to the ball.

The officials declined to throw a flag on the play, and the Sooners were forced to punt it away on fourth down.
Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley clearly disagreed with the no-call and didn’t hide his frustration on the sideline.
