18th-ranked Colorado took on its in-state rival Colorado State in a high-scoring contest late Saturday night.

The Buffaloes took the lead in the second overtime on a touchdown pass from Shedeur Sanders to Michael Harrison, followed by a successful two-point conversion from Xavier Weaver.

Colorado State got the ball back and had a chance to tie the game and force a third overtime.

Rams QB Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi led Colorado State to a successful drive and scored a rushing touchdown in double overtime.

However, the officials called a flag for a blindside block and took the points off the board.

Two plays later, Fowler-Nicolosi threw an interception on fourth down to end the game.

College football fans rushed to social media to debate whether this was the right punishment decision.

One commented: “This is an illegal blindside block. You can’t just take command away from a defensive back while the QB is still a passer, lol.”

Another said: “Manipulated. Ridiculous call.”

A third said: “This is literally a textbook blindside block. What is everyone mad about?”
