Maryland Scores Bizarre Accidental Touchdown, Has It Taken Away

Maryland guy calls fair catch. West Virginia guy plows into Maryland guy. Maryland guy can't make catch. Maryland scores touchdown.


As entertaining as it was, the rules do not allow for such a thing. Once a man calls for a fair catch, the ball can't be advanced, by him or anyone else. Fun, but in no way legal. But it's okay, because Maryland scored in a few plays anyway.

That helped cut into what was once a 28-6 West Virginia lead and the score sits at 28-20 at the half. West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett's halftime numbers: 20-of-26, 307 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT.
