2nd half Utah field goal

Submitted by TheBigAC on September 5th, 2008 at 1:24 PM

Just an interesting note on Utah's lone score in the second half. I was at the game and saw the play clock run out a good 3-4 seconds before they got the snap off. There should have been a delay of game penalty forcing the field goal to 58 yards if they still would have tried a field goal in that situation. When I watched the game later and after reading numerous articles and blog posts, I could find no mention of this anywhere. I am not saying this would have changed the results but it is a shame to see M lose by 2 after a clear no call on Utah's winning score. Did anyne else at the game notice this or am I alone out here?

Yeah, I saw that as well.  However, I spoke with one of my friends who
had the game recorded and on the game clock shown on the TV, there was
still time left.  So I'm not sure what the deal with that is.

This is a Mormon/ESPN conspiracy to hold down Michigan, no doubt influenced by Steve Young, since he wants BYU-Utah to be undefeated when they meet for exposure purposes. And Kirk Herbstreit probably gave the clock guy a twenty.
