Oklahoma's Sooner Schooner was involved in a scary accident during Saturday's game against West Virginia.

The carriage of the horse-drawn wagon flipped on the field during the first half of the game. People riding in the wagon fell to the ground as the horses continued running toward the end zone at Owen Field.

Oklahoma released a statement and said no one was seriously injured in the incident.

"The Sooner Schooner tipped over today. We believe it was the result of weight distribution among riders in the rear of the wagon," the university said. "Three individuals were evaluated at the stadium and released. All others reported that they were uninjured. Upon initial evaluation, it also appears the ponies are uninjured."

Earlier this fall, Sports Illustrated ranked the greatest traditions in college football and named the Sooner Schooner as the best ritual.
