It was the crucial play of the game. The Beavers were trailing 28-21 USC with the ball and then what looked like a huge break!! But.......
Who knows might have happened had safety Jalen Moore's scamper and score of a Vavae Malepeai fumble in the early fourth quarter not been disallowed when Malepeai was mistakenly ruled down.
The original call was overturned by video review, but the Beavers didn't get the touchdown back. The got the ball at the 39 and then stalled and then USC took advantage and pulled away for the 38-21 victory. USC was the better team but Oregon State continues to improve.
