First there were last-minute fireworks between Mike Leach and referee Michael Batlan, resulting in a well-earned 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty… Batlan's field microphone was still on after he announced the penalty and he could be heard saying to another official "you heard what he said, right?"
