Nebraska Vs. Texas A&M Football: Official Conspiracy?
I am officially the last person that buys into the "Big 12 referees against Nebraska" conspiracy. But Courtney Osborne just got flagged for a late hit on Tannehill that was beyond questionable. That's the second time that the Aggies were held on a third down in the second half and given a first down by the officials. The conversion puts the Aggies into field goal position, and A&M ends up getting a chip-shot field goal to take a 9-6 lead.
I'm not sure I'm willing to say there's a direct conspiracy to make sure Nebraska doesn't win the game. I think there is something to NU having a reputation from the refs. Remember, it was Osborne that had the helmet-to-helmet shot on Blaine Gabbert of Missouri that didn't get called. If nothing else, the late hit call tonight may be a make-up call for the hit on Gabbert.
Either way, a big stop from NU leaves the door open for some fourth quarter magic. Remember, it took a fade to Maurice Purify in a similar situation last time NU was in College Station.
