Keith Price pass overturned, ruled incomplete to end Washington’s hopes (Video)

Washington’s comeback bid at Stanford came up short on Saturday after a fourth-down pass from Keith Price was overturned and ruled incomplete in the final two minutes.

Washington was trailing Stanford 31-28 and got the ball back at their 33 with 1:51 left following a Stanford punt. Price completed his first pass to move the Huskies to the Cardinal 49, but his next three attempts were incompletions. On 4th and 10, Price avoided trouble and scrambled to his left and found Kevin Smith, who made a diving catch for a first down. The play was initially ruled a catch, but the officials reviewed the call and determined the ball hit the ground first, making it an incompletion. Stanford got the ball back and ran out the clock to secure the win.

Washington fans will have a hard time with that call being overturned. You can see a GIF of the play and freeze frame below to help make your determination:

Washington QB Keith Price Gives Smoke a Joint Signal to Receiver (Video)
