Video: Ref’s blunder costs Colorado the game vs Hawaii

The Colorado Buffaloes and Hawaii Rainbow Warriors played late into the night on Thursday in what ended up being a terrific game. The Buffaloes were trailing by 8 with ten seconds left on the clock and then something horrible happened.

The Buffaloes were down inside the Warriors’ ten yard line with no timeouts. They needed to get one more snap off, score, and the convert the two-point try to go to overtime. SB Nation shared the video of why the Buffaloes never got their chance of trying for the endzone one last time.

What a terrible way for a game to end. Nobody knows if the Buffaloes were going to score, but now, nobody will ever know. This may force the NCAA to look into something to prevent this from happening in the future.

Maybe the referees will have their stuff together by the next game.
