Questionable pass interference call helps Clemson win game
Clemson put together one heck of a comeback to beat Alabama in the National Championship Game on Monday night, and they got a little assist from the officials.
First they benefited from an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty call on their drive before taking a 28-24 lead on Alabama in the fourth quarter. Then in the final seconds of the game, they got a pass interference call that brought the ball down to the two.
Tigers wide receiver Mike Williams, who was incredible in the game, appeared to slip while going out for a pass but drew a pass interference penalty flag on 2nd and goal from the 9.
The penalty took the ball down to the two. Clemson then went for it with a ballsy call and scored a touchdown to take the lead and win the championship. Their touchdown was scored on a pick play, where they were not called for a penalty.
Clemson deserved the win and played great, but they also got an assist from the refs.
