Overturned targeting call saves Texas Tech’s Vaughnte Dorsey on a career night


Between his first and second interception in the first quarter, Texas Tech safety Vaughnte Dorsey had to wait out a targeting review. Dorsey was called for targeting on a hit against Oklahoma’s Grant Calcaterra after a 25-yard reception. The penalty was reversed upon replay review. Dorsey’s interceptions of Kyler Murray on Oklahoma’s first two series helped Tech build a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Dorsey also had five tackles in the first half, including another hard hit on Calcaterra in the second quarter.

— Texas Tech starting linebacker Dakota Allen played with a heavily padded broken hand, after suffering the injury last week, and also suffered a left knee injury in the first half.

— Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione is enjoying his first year as a member of the College Football Playoff selection committee. Just don’t ask him for specifics on what’s going on inside the room. “I’m on lockdown,” he said before the game.

— Sooners receiver Lee Morris continued to show a talent for finding the end zone. Of his first four catches against Tech, two were for touchdowns. He has 16 receptions this season, with eight for TDs.

— Tech receiver Antoine Wesley, who entered the game second nationally in receiving yards per game, went over 1,000 yards for the season in the first quarter.

— OU receiver CeeDee Lamb picked up 30 yards in penalties on one play in the third quarter. After a 14-yard catch to the Texas Tech 7, Lamb was flagged for a personal foul on Tech defensive back Desmon Smith as well as unsportsmanlike conduct, killing the drive.

— Tech kicker Clayton Hatfield nailed a 43-yard field goal early in the second quarter off the left upright.

— Oklahoma kicker Austin Seibert broke the NCAA record for career extra-point makes (278) and attempts (282). The previous records were held by Baylor’s Aaron Jones.
