With 39 seconds left in the 4th quarter, and Iowa State knocking on the door to tie things up, Oklahoma State needed somebody to make a play.
On 2nd-and-goal, backup quarterback Zeb Noland floated a pass into the end zone, intended for Cyclone receiver Marchie Murdoch. It would’ve tied the game had he come down with it, but instead, Oklahoma State sophomore cornerback A.J. Green plucked it out of the air.
Here's my view of A.J. Green's game-sealing interception for #okstate. I'm flashing back to Green Bay/Seattle/Replacement Ref memories. pic.twitter.com/03iHs8uZw9— Tyler Wiederhoeft (@TDWiederhoeft) November 12, 2017

Oklahoma State fans rejoiced, and Iowa State fans freaked out. The play appeared to be an interception in real time, and after review, the officials confirmed it was. The ruling, however, was subject to controversy around the country.

The game-deciding play in Ames was controversial, so decide for yourself in the @CocaCola Instant Replay. pic.twitter.com/0YWFYumRiw
What do you think? Did #Big12Refs strike again? Did they get it right?
