Debated call sets up Texas field goal
By David Ubben
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Nebraska coach Bo Pelini and defensive coordinator Carl Pelini are besides themselves along the Cornhuskers' sideline after a debatable pass interference call helped set up a 40-yard field goal by Hunter Lawrence.
The Pelinis didn't think that Prince Amukamara interfered with Malcolm Williams along the sideline. Both signaled to game officials they thought that Colt McCoy's pass was uncatchable as it sailed out of bounds.
It didn't change the decision and Lawrence's field goal has given the Longhorns a 10-6 lead.
The way the defenses are playing in this game, a four-point margin might be insurmountable.
