The Bedlam Series rivalry between Oklahoma State and Oklahoma features plenty of memorable moments. A unique one took place during Saturday's game as Cowboys kicker Ben Grogan was forced to make a field goal amid an earthquake.

Jake Trotter of ESPN noted the crazy accomplishment, which took place around the midway point of the second quarter to give Oklahoma State a 10-7 lead:

Trotter made sure to note it was an actual earthquake and not just a comparison to the fans:

An earthquake was noted at the time, measuring a magnitude 4.5 in Jones, Oklahoma, according to an Earthquakes and Tsunamis account on Twitter:

Oklahoma State and Oklahoma are both ranked inside the Top 25, and the rivalry always adds a little extra intrigue. Kicking a field goal during an earthquake is certainly something different, and it will be a lasting memory for Grogan and those in attendance.

Thankfully, there are no initial reports of injuries or damage due to the tremor.
