KNOXVILLE, TN – Oklahoma completed the biggest rally for a visitor in Neyland Stadium history, rallying from a 17-0 deficit to beat Tennessee 31-24 in double overtime on Saturday night.
Sooner quarterback Baker Mayfield found Sterling Shepard, who made an acrobatic move to get into the end zone, to put Oklahoma up in the second overtime. An interception of a Joshua Dobbs pass sealed the victory.
Mayfield and Shepard had connected for a five-yard touchdown pass with less than a minute to go in regulation to force overtime. Mayfield’s touchdown run on fourth down in the first extra period kept the game alive after Tennessee had taken the lead on Jalen Hurd’s touchdown run.
Chuck Cooperstein and Derek Rackley called the action on Westwood One Sports.
