Yeah I understand how that works. Just surprised it goes to a dead ball foul so quickly, he had only taken a step or two out of bounds. It just seems to me that some rules condtradict one another.
For instance, if a player catches a ball on fourth down he must maintain position through the catch even if it takes him out of bounds. In this case the play extends, albeit momentarily, out of bounds.
Shouldn't the same be the case on a late hit out of bounds on a fourth down play?
Clemson is desperately trying to Clemson this game.
BCS level college football is a resource war, not a morality play.
Yes! The ACC finally gets a big BCS win... first time since FSU's national championship over... ahem.
Hopefully FSU makes it two big ACC BCS wins in a few days. And a national title.
