FAU Spiked The Ball On Fourth Down

When you're one of the worst teams in major college football, you need all the breaks to go your way and to call a perfect game. FAU lost by several touchdowns to the University of Miami tonight, and the way they ended the game might suggest why they struggled so much.

With time running out, and attempting to score a face-saving touchdown, Owls quarterback Quez Johnson was tackled on a third-down scramble. FAU coach Carl Pelini called for Johnson to spike the ball, and the team went into and executed the clock formation. Hurricanes ball! It's the second failure out of the clock formation in as many days. [ESPNU]
