Florida State muffs a 62-yard punt and Michigan pounced on the ball. The back judge was right on the call and had good whistle discipline.

A great call by the field judge to rule the Michigan receiver out of bounds as the player landed with his back just on the line.

12:08 | 2nd qtr.

First personal foul of the game on Florida State’s Trey Marshall for a late hit out of bounds. The head linesman with the flag.
The ball carrier stepped out of bounds and Marshall didn’t play the whistle and gave Michigan’s Eddie McDoom (great football name) an extra shot. An easy, call and one the officials cannot ignore.

Second DPI called on Michigan. The head linesman and the side judge threw the flag. The defender never turned around to play the ball and it was an easy call.

Great positioning and call by the side judge Chad Hill on Florida State’s long run. It’s a tight call and extremely important to get that right because replay can’t reverse the call when the runner is called out of bounds.

Pass into the endzone initially ruled a touchdown by back judge Grantis Bell; however umpire Russ Pulley came in and emphatically ruled the pass incomplete. The call was affirmed by line judge Michael Taylor. Replay confimed the incomplete call.
Bell was straight-lined on the play and the other two officials, while further away, had a better angle to make the call.
Patrick Weber Patrick Weber December 30, 201611:27 pm

7:58 | 4th qtr.

Call for targeting on Florida State is confirmed after review. The punt returner had not yet become a runner, and is protected from hits to the head/neck area. The Florida State player clearly went helmet-to-helmet with his hit, so the call is correct.
