Watch: FSU loses touchdown on illegal forward pass

Florida State lost a touchdown on a trick play against Miami on Saturday because of an illegal forward pass.

The Seminoles had a 2nd-and-7 from the Miami 39 in the fourth quarter and attempted a trick play. Deondre Francois passed to DJ Matthews, who then threw to a wide open Keith Gavin for a touchdown. A flag was thrown on the play immediately to wipe out the touchdown.
