OSU football: Spencer Sanders' attempted hurdle goes wrong
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders saw Kansas defensive back Kyle Mayberry shuffle his feet, almost as if he wanted to dive low for the tackle.
Sanders hates that move.
So, it was time for Sanders to go high as Mayberry went low. Except, everything went wrong. Both went high, and a poor decision became a first down and a moment of humor.
Sanders left himself exposed as he barreled into Mayberry’s upper body, drawing multiple replays and reactions inside Boone Pickens Stadium during OSU’s 31-13 victory Saturday.

“I’m not going to comment on what I saw and what happened, but it was funny,” OSU running back Chuba Hubbard said.
Hubbard attempted his own hurdle later in the game, but instead he fumbled the ball.
Still, the attention went to Sanders’ attempt at a hurdle over Mayberry, a Tulsa Booker T. Washington product. It was reminiscent of his famous hurdle at Oregon State to open the season. Except, that one actually worked.
“I was just like, “All right, you’re coming down with me,” Sanders said. “I mean, it worked. I got the first down. But, it was not comfortable.”
