LUBBOCK, Texas — Brent Venables thought it was good.
Oklahoma found themselves satisfied with a 34-yard field goal attempt on the first possession of overtime against Texas Tech on Saturday. Out came redshirt kicker sophomore Zach Schmit, who sailed the ball toward the right post as the crowd at Jones AT&T Stadium roared unrelentingly.
The ball hooked as it flew over the post. And after a short pause the officials signaled that the kick was no good. Schmit raised his hands in disbelief at the call, and he wasn't alone.

Texas Tech scored a 51-48 win on the next possession via a 35-yard field goal and Venables was asked about Schmit's missed attempt after the game.
"He said it's unverifiable," Venables said of his conversation with officers. "It's hard. I'm at a bad angle. It was looking pretty good for me."

Senior running back Eric Gray felt the same way.
Gray didn't watch the kick live because he was anxiously waiting at the back of Oklahoma's bench. But after watching the instant replay, he came to the same conclusion as Venables.
"I thought it went through," Gray said. "When they did the replay and it looked like it would go over the post, it was definitely a weird feeling."
In reality, it's difficult to tell if a field goal is good or not when it sails over the post. And it's even harder to tell when most of the reps are done at an angle.

Oklahoma also had several opportunities to avoid overtime altogether, including a 29-yard attempt by Schmit late in the first quarter. The Sooners faked the kick instead, and defending champion Michael Turk failed to complete a pass to tight end Brayden Willis for the first down.
"As our boys go forward, just understand you're a game or two away from things being completely different," said offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby. “That's the reality of this game. ... If we understand that we have chances of winning football games, we have to close the door, close the door, put the nail in the coffin and finish and win. That's the deal.”
