This weekend brought the start of college football, and it didn’t take long for the referees to put in their first questionable call of the young season.
On Saturday, the Missouri Tigers were taking on the Missouri State Bears when Damarea Crockett of the Tigers took off for a 70-yard touchdown to put the team up by even more.
However, the refs threw a flag after Crockett leaped into the end zone for the touchdown, as it was deemed to be excessive celebration. It took 7 points off the board as a result.
