FCS 2019 Playoffs in Football Posted 1 hour ago 2 hours ago, JohnboyND7 said: The score was 9-0. That would have made it 9-7. The rest of the is different after that. Heck had it happened later in the game I might be more inclined to give it more value. The official guy on Bisonville gave a nice explanation for how officials handle that call. Had they called it a fumble, I dont think anyone would have had valid grounds to complain Sorry I was still talking about the game from my younger years. I found the game I was looking for. It was 1982 against Virginia Union. I was wrong in that they didn't win the NC that year. Here is the write up from NDSU football guide. looks like SU was down 6 with a couple minutes left when the inadvertent whistle occurred. 1982 NCAA Quarterfinal FARGO, ND--North Dakota State hosted an NCAA playoff game for the first time since 1977 and the Bison were rewarded with a scary 21-20 opening-round victory over Virginia Union. The Bison scored two fourth-quarter TDs including a 1-yard run by Jeff Willis with 1:06 remaining in the game to pull out the win. NDSU trailed 20-7 early in the final stanza before holding the Panthers inside the Bison 40. The Herd then marched 59 yards in four plays with Mark Nellermoe hitting two big passes in the drive to Stacy Robinson and Jeff Conley. On the next possession, the Bison marched 80 yards in 16 plays for the game winner. The series was marred by an inadvertant whistle by an official on an apparent Virginia Union pass interception, and the ball was returned to the Bison on the Panther 14- yard line. The Bison scored four plays later. Virginia Union scored fi rst and had a 12-0 lead before the Bison's Jim Dick blocked a punt that was downed on the Union 2-yard line. Nellermoe took it in from the 1 on the next play.
