Redshirt senior quarterback Matt McGloin snapped the ball with 7:46 to play from the 3-yard-line on 2nd-and-goal. He turned immediately to his right and fired a swing pass to tight end Matt Lehman, who darted for the goal line and launched himself towards it, despite two Cornhuskers in his path. Just after he reached the ball across the line, linebacker David Santos knocked the ball free and into the end zone, where it was recovered by Nebraska safety Daimion Stafford. Replays on ABC showed that Lehman had, in fact, reached the ball across the goal line before Santos knocked it out of his hands. As the play went to review, ABC broadcasters Sean McDonough (the current play-by-play for Monday Night Football) and Chris Spielman both agreed that Lehman had scored. "No doubt," McDonough said. "Six points, Nittany Lions," Spielman agreed. Referee John O'Neill upheld the call on the field. Nebraska would hold on for a 32-23 win. In 2014, Ohio State came to Happy Valley trying to builds its resume back up after a tough early season loss to Virginia Tech. The 13th-ranked Buckeyes were clear favorites, but the White Out atmosphere was always an X-factor for visiting teams. On the first Penn State drive of the game, Christian Hackenberg threw a weak pass to his right intended for wide receiver Matt Zanellato. Defensive back Vonn Bell jumped the route and knocked the ball to the ground with 13:07 to play in the first quarter. As he went to the ground, Bell attempted to get his arms underneath the ball but failed to do so. He did manage to fool the referees on the field, but within two seconds of seeing the replay, ESPN broadcasters Brad Nessler and Todd Blackledge agreed that the call would be overturned. Referee John O'Neill upheld the call on the field. Ohio State drove down 39 yards and scored a touchdown to take a 7-0 lead. Later in the first half of that same game, Ohio State lined up for a 49-yard field goal on 4th-and-25. With 11:13 left on the second quarter clock, the Buckeyes snapped the ball and Sean Nuernberger kicked it through the uprights to put Ohio State up 10-0. The play clock had hit zero with 11:16 on the clock, more than two seconds before the ball was snapped. Referee John O'Neill's crew did not stop the play to call Delay of Game on Ohio State. Ohio State went on to win the game 31-24 in double overtime.
