Could of been hit by another tree. I have had trees fall onto other trees and cause damage. Could be a wild animal too. Deer ate the bark off it,scraped it's horn on it? Porcupine?

Im having a hard time telling what exactly the problem is. It looks like you took a picture of the corky enations of a bur oak. Which is normal.
