After Baylor quarterback Blake Shapen’s final pass sailed over the end zone early Sunday morning, ESPN cameras caught a moment on the BYU sidelines that didn’t go unnoticed on social media.
BYU quarterback Jaren Hall was seen hugging teammate Jake Oldroyd as the team celebrated a 26-20 double overtime win over Baylor.
Oldroyd, a junior kicker who kicked a game-winning field goal as a freshman against Arizona in 2016 and was a Lou Groza Award Finalist in 2020, had earlier missed two game-winning kicks — a 35-yarder in the final seconds of regulation and a 37-yarder at end of the first overtime.
Here are a few of the reactions:
