Oklahoma State Central Michigan

Oklahoma State linebacker Chad Whitener sits alone in the Central Michigan end zone while the Chippewas celebrate a last-second touchdown by wide receiver Corey Willis, resulting in a 30-27 win Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016, in Stillwater, Okla.

Two Big 12 instant replay officials who were partially blamed for a rules gaffe that gave Central Michigan an untimed down and resulted in the Chippewas’ miraculous win at No. 22 Oklahoma State have been suspended for two games, the league announced Sunday.

The two officials weren’t the only ones in the conference to have a rough weekend, though. Several Big 12 teams also had rough days Saturday, as the league limped to a 4-5 mark despite being favored in seven of nine games.

Hey Anthony, you ought to try standup comedy. If Baylor plays a weak schedule what do you call what UH plays? You are definitely not a fan of the Big 12 and a UH homer, I get that. But come on, UH plays a cream puff schedule, I give them their props on beating OU soundly. At the end of the year, one of the toughest schedules in college football belongs to a team in Austin, not Houston. This is why it is hard to take UH seriously, I really do hope they get in the Big 12 and we see what happens after Herman. LSU has their sights dead on UH's coach, I bet it happens.
