OSU’s Justin Gilbert Suplex-Tackles Oklahoma’s Jalen Saunders, Forgets He’s Not in WWE (GIF)

In the words of former WWE commentator Jim Ross, “OH MY GAWD!”

It’s conference championship day in college football and across the country, tempers are flaring. Some teams are not only fighting for some divisional hardware, but a berth in a BCS bowl game. The stakes are high, especially in the Big 12 Conference, where inter-state rivals No. 6 Oklahoma State University are playing No. 18 Oklahoma. Players will do whatever it takes to get a leg up in games of this magnitude, including busting out the finishing move of a WWE superstar.

In the first half, Oklahoma receiver Jalen Saunders, who would later return a punt for a score, caught a ball along the sideline and was immediately wrapped up by OSU’s Justin Gilbert. Saunders kept fighting for some quality yards after the catch, which only made Gilbert fight back harder. Eventually, Gilbert had enough and picked Saunders off his feet and nearly threw the receiver over his head.

And that, kids, is why you never skip leg day.
