LOOK: Should Ohio State's fumble recovery have counted for a TD?
There’s a little controversy in Texas.
In the first quarter of Saturday night’s primetime matchup between No. 4 Ohio State and No. 15 TCU, Buckeyes defensive end Nick Bosa exploded through the Horned Frogs’ offensive line and strip-sacked quarterback Shawn Robinson. The fumble was recovered in the end zone by Davon Hamilton for an OSU touchdown, pushing the lead to 10-0.
One problem, though. A camera angle appears to show Hamilton out of bounds before recovering the fumble, which would’ve resulted in a touchback, not a touchdown.
That Ohio State touchdown should not have counted. https://t.co/GGBC5NZEL1

So Ohio State got a huge break on that call. TCU fans will probably compare it to the break the Buckeyes got by earning a bid in the 2014 College Football Playoff, too.
Maybe it was a missed call, but it was still an incredible play from Bosa.
