Tulsa TD Taken Off Board After Premature "Celebration" [Update]

And now, for the dumbest thing you will see today:

This is Tulsa’s Justin Hobbs having a 72-yard touchdown catch wiped off the board because he kind-of, sort-of high-stepped on his way to the end zone. The Golden Hurricane is 2-6 on the season, and while there’s still 12 minutes left in the game they’re losing by one point—and they’d be up by three if they’d gotten that touchdown instead of the field goal they ended up finishing that drive with.


This is so stupid.

Update (12:45 a.m.): Tulsa lost by four points, the exact margin that they lost as a result of this penalty.
