There aren't many effective defenses for preventing a field goal -- other than relying on #collegekickers -- but an earthquake might be the best one yet.

As Oklahoma State's Ben Grogran lined up to attempt a 41-yard kick midway through the second quarter of Saturday's game against Oklahoma, a 4.5-magnitude earthquake hit just north of Oklahoma City. That didn't stop Grogan from drilling the field goal to give the Cowboys an early 10-7 lead over the Sooners.

Bedlam, indeed.
