It’s almost 24 hours later, and it’s still hard to believe how badly Washington got screwed at the end of their game against BYU. I know I shouldn’t be shocked by a blown call by a Pac-10 officiating crew (the Tweedledums of the college football world) in the Pacific Northwest (there is precedent after all), but I still am. Even more shocking: the blown call went against the Pac-10 team.
Here’s what happened - Washington’s Jake Locker scored on an amazing scramble with two seconds left to bring the Huskies to within one point of the Cougars. As Ty Willingham appeared to be signaling an all-or-nothing two-point conversion attempt, the officials threw am extremely dubious flag on Locker for excessive celebratio. Which led to a blocked 35-yard PAT attempt and a heartbreaking 28-27 loss for Washington.
