In 2006, the Oregon Ducks met up with the Oklahoma Sooners in a huge out of conference game. As the game wore on, the officiating got progressively worse and calls were being missed left and right.
Oregon was trailing by 13 late in the game but a Dennis Dixon touchdown run, drew them to within 6 with 1:12 remaining. Naturally, the Ducks lined up for an onside kick and then it happened. The ball went up, players collided, a pile formed, refs pointed Oregon ball, Oklahoma players left the pile with the ball and chaos broke out.
The referees went to review, which many believed showed Oregon touching the ball before ten yards let alone not possessing the ball. Regardless, the game continued as Oregon scored seconds later to take a 34-33 lead. While Oklahoma did manage to get a field goal attempt off, it was blocked, and the Ducks left with a victory that kept them in the national storylines for weeks.
