Texas thought it had an interception against Texas Tech. Instead it gave up a touchdown.

This is certain to be a play you’ll see a lot.

Texas appeared to have an easy interception on Thursday night in the Longhorns’ game against Texas Tech. However, just as the Texas defensive back was about to snag an interception, Tech’s Devin Lauderdale unloaded a vicious hit.

The ball popped into the air. Jakeem Grant grabbed the ball and raced to the end zone for a 65-yard touchdown that the announcers dubbed an Immaculate Reception.
