Questionable call nullifies touchdown
By Heather Dinich
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- An interception return for a touchdown was nullified by a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness when FSU's Greg Reid delivered the kind of hit on Da'Rel Scott that makes you wince. That call -- which will likely continue to be argued by fans, and coach Jimbo Fisher certainly didn't seem to agree with it -- changed the momentum of the game in the first quarter. Instead of further distancing the Noles from Maryland, it sustained a drive that looks like it's about to lead to a game-tying touchdown for the Terps.
Here's the thing, though, for Florida State. If the defense could make some stops and get Maryland off the field, it wouldn't come down to a missed call.
