Brandon Wilson returns missed FG 100 yards in Houston win

Houston's Brandon Wilson now has the one thing in common with former Auburn defensive back Chris Davis that any college football player would want.

A "Kick Six" touchdown.

Wilson stunned Oklahoma on Saturday in returning a missed field goal from the back of one end zone to the other, helping to spur a second-half upset, 33-23, over the No. 3-ranked Sooners. Officially, the return went for just 100 yards, even though Wilson fielded an Oklahoma 53-yard field goal try that fell just short of the crossbar at the back of his own end zone.

The play draws obvious comparisons to Davis' score in the 2013 Iron Bowl against Alabama, which College Football 24/7 named as one of the greatest college plays of all-time.

Davis' return spoiled what could have been a national championship season for the rival Crimson Tide.

Just one week into the season, Wilson's has already begun to spoil Oklahoma's year, as well.
