The Oklahoma Sooners couldn't have had a worst start in their semifinal game against LSU. In their first drive, they went three-and-out while losing yardage, shanked a punt, then allowed Joe Burrow to carve up the secondary with a touchdown.
The rout many forecasted appeared to be on, especially after Jalen Hurts and company couldn't get anything going on a second drive. But Alex Grinch's defense got a stop and then Jalen Hurts went up top to All-Everything wide receiver CeeDee Lamb for a 51-yard connection.
That's special. Oklahoma finished off the drive in the end zone to tie things up 7-7. How many more stops can they get? Well, that remains to be seen. But there are signs of life for the Sooners.
