Georgia Tech Vs. Clemson Score Update: Missed Offside Call Leads To Tigers TD

Now in the fourth quarter, the Clemson Tigers have drawn within two touchdowns of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, 31-17, after the officiating crew's very poor fumble call led to a Tajh Boyd rushing touchdown.

Clemson's Rennie Moore jumped way, way offside and forced a goal line fumble, ripping the ball out of Tevin Washington's hands before he'd fully secured the snap from center. Replays showed he was well beyond the line of scrimmage, and ABC's announcers acknowledged the whoopsie. Clemson quickly ran a play before corrections could be made.

Sure, Clemson also had to travel 99 entire yards to make it matter, aided by two Sammy Watkins catches of 26 yards or more. But I'm being an enormous homer. It was a really bad call though, you guys.
