Penn State managed to conquer a physical effort from the visiting Aubrun Tiger son Saturday evening. Penn State also overcame faulty officiating by the SEC officials working the game.
In the second quarter, SEC officials mistakenly value Penn State a third down after no longer changing the down marker following a (questionable) intentional grounding penalty on Sean Clifford. Franklin was outraged over the misplaced down. And by the level the officials working the game realized the mistake, it was too late.
The SEC issued the next statement admitting the officials and the replay sales space all mismanaged the situation;
At 11: 45 within the 2nd quarter, Penn State throws an incomplete pass that was judged to be Intentional Grounding. The crew’s enforcement of the penalty erroneously position the down to 3rd; the apt down may tranquil have been 2nd. The replay sales space was consulted to confirm the down ahead of the punt. The replay sales space had the down as 4th down as smartly.
The error was found at some stage within the media timeout that adopted the punt and by rule it may probably no longer be corrected at that time.
In the discontinue, it didn’t matter as Penn State tranquil managed to celebrate a retract. Nonetheless perhaps the SEC now owes Penn State an extra down in a future game.
Penn State visits Auburn next season, although it’s anticipated Gargantuan Ten officials will probably be calling that game as part of the contract for the house-and-house series.
