After Official Review, Texas Wins

The Texas football team survived a scare against the Iowa State Cyclones on Thursday night, scoring a controversial late touchdown to win 31-30.

 

The Supervisor of Officials for the Big 12 Conference confirmed his referees made the right call when they allowed the Longhorns to maintain possession of the football after an apparent fumble near the goal line.   Texas scored the winning touchdown two plays later.

 

The replay official in the press box reviewed five different camera angles of the play, and decided there was no indisputable evidence to overturn the ruling on the field. 

 

Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads addressed the controversy in his post-game press conference, saying he believed the officials made the wrong call.
