However, officials called a flag for a blindside block and took the points off the board.

Two plays later, Fowler-Nicolosi threw a fourth-down interception to end the game.

College football fans stormed to social media to debate if that was the correct call on the penalty.

One expressed: “This is an illegal blindside block. You can’t just decleat a defensive back while the QB is still a passer, lol.”
