Some ECU fans were more than a little upset with the officiating at Saturday's Homecoming game between East Carolina and Marshall.
One play in particular stood out.
Late in the game with East Carolina forced to punt. Punter Matt Dodge has a kick roll down inside the Marshall five yard line. The Marshall punt returner tries to avoid touching the football and appears on several camera angles to possibly touch the ball before it is recovered by an ECU player for what would have been a Pirate touchdown.
The referees talk it over and decide that the Marshal player did not touch the football giving the Thundering Herd possession. The play was reviewed and was not overturned because of a lack of overwhelming evidence otherwise.
WITN sports director Billy Weaver shot this exclusive video on the sideline that clearly shows the referees made the right call.
