Music City Bowl refs somehow decided this wasn’t an LSU touchdown
It’s a close call. But it’s also a clear call.
This fake field goal run by LSU’s Brad Kragthorpe to close the first half against Notre Dame should’ve been a touchdown.
As you can see above, the ball breaks the plane. You can also see that his knees aren’t down yet. You can tell they aren’t down at the same time as the ball crossing the plane because they clearly collide with the ground a beat later. From another angle, you could also see without any doubt that his knees weren’t down as he extended the ball.
After review, Pac-12 officials upheld the original call of no touchdown. Notre Dame took a 21-14 lead into the break.
Ruled, reviewed, and confirmed as “No Touchdown”. Wut? pic.twitter.com/lUPdZgOZkF
