Oregon loses key touchdown on pylon review

Oregon pylon review

Oregon lost a key touchdown in the third quarter of their game against Stanford on Saturday night as part of a major swing.

Oregon was up 24-7 and appeared to score a touchdown on a run by Jaylon Redd. However, the officials reviewed the play and determined that Redd’s left foot touched the pylon before the ball crossed the goal line.

Even though the pylon is inbounds in the NFL, it is out of bounds in college football. That led to the ball being placed at the 1-yard-line for Oregon. The Ducks lost yardage on their next play on a botched exchange from the quarterback to running back. Two plays later, Justin Herbert lost a fumble after a bad snap that was picked up by Stanford and returned 80 yards for a touchdown.

Instead of Oregon being up 30-7 after what they thought was a TD, the Ducks ended up only being up 24-14 after the Stanford TD. The Cardinal took that momentum and scored on their next possession, making it a 24-21 game.
