Controversial Final Play of Penn State-Duke Lacrosse Game Sparks Calls for NCAA Rule Changes
The lacrosse game between No. 5 Penn State and No. 1 Duke in Philadelphia was a thrilling match-up in which the underdogs, Penn State, came out fighting despite Duke being heavy favourites. Duke took the lead early on and held it until the late third and early fourth quarters when Penn State tied the game. The match was tied at 15 at the end of regulation time, and the game went into overtime. Duke scored the winning goal, but replays showed that the ball had crossed the line after the player's foot had stepped out of bounds. NCAA rules dictated that the play could not be reviewed, and the goal stood. The game ended with Duke winning 16-15, but the missed call has led to criticism of the NCAA's rules on video review.
