(7)Michigan State Loses to Nebraska After Another Controversial Finish in College Football
Another week, another game decided by a controversial call.
This week, our controversial play happened in Lincoln, Nebraska. No. 7 Michigan State let 3-6 Nebraska hang around and this touchdown pass decided the game.
As you will see, Nebraska wide receiver Brandon Reilly went out of bounds on the near sideline, came back in and made the catch for a touchdown, giving the Huskers a 39-38 lead and eventual win. The officials called it a touchdown and said that Reilly was forced out of bounds by the Michigan State defender.
The call doesn't compare to Miami's miracle return against Duke that should have never happened. The ACC suspended that crew and the replay officials for two weeks for four mistakes they did not catch on the play.
The loss is Michigan State's first and it also keeps lowly Nebraska's bleak chance of becoming bowl eligible alive.
The Big Ten may address the issue, but in regards to a punishment like the ACC officials received for their blunder in Durham, don't expect anyone from that Big Ten crew to be suspended.
