Ohio State loses touchdown after fumble reversed to incompletion on review

Share

An absolutely classic College Football Playoff semifinal ended in heartbreaking fashion for Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields.

Facing a serious challenger for the first time in months, No. 3 Clemson and its ideal quarterback had to tap into their championship DNA to advance to the College Football Playoff title game for the fourth time in five years.

Lawrence then hit Tee Higgins in the back of the end zone for two points, making it a 6-point game. It was also the longest rush they've allowed since October 2016, per ESPN Stats & Info, when former Florida State running back Dalvin Cook had a 70-yard run in Clemson's win over the Seminoles.

The Tigers were down 23-21 with just 3:07 remaining and were facing a lot of field ahead them, taking over on their own 6-yard line. No flag was thrown on the field, but replay review spotted helmet-to-helmet contact.

In the fourth, Justin Fields threw a 28-yard pass to help the Buckeyes get their lead back. "Especially because it was on third down and we were about to get off the field, and they get a first down off that and they get a PI right after".

"Everybody kept saying we didn't play nobody, that we blow out teams".

He said the vehicle detonated after police at the checkpoint blocked it from proceeding into the city. Numerous dead were "students with ambition, and hardworking men and women", he wrote.

Asked whether he was surprised the play got overturned, Fuller said no. And then with this wild 64-yard play in the final seconds of the first quarter, he passed Eddie George to be at the top of that category. The Tigers scored two touchdowns before the half and cut the OSU lead to just two heading into halftime.

The next call Ohio State fans will remember is the strip fumble scoop-and-score in the second half by Ohio State cornerback Jeff Okudah, who appeared to rip the ball away from Clemson wide receiver Justyn Ross.

Williamson said the play was reviewed in the stadium as well as at the video review center the SEC uses in Birmingham, and said they determined when Ross moved, the ball was becoming loose in his hands and he did not complete the process of the catch.

"Yeah, just because of the way the game was going", he said. Get in on the conversation about Ohio State athletics by joining the Buckeyes Wire Forum.
