Harvard Touchdown Reversed After RB Devin Darrington Taunts Yale Defender

The officials reversed the touchdown with an unsportsmanlike conduct call after RB Devin Darrington made what appeared to be an obscene gesture.

Harvard got a touchdown called back after sophomore running back Devin Darrington taunted Yale defensive back Rodney Thomas II with what was presumed to be the middle finger as he ran into the end zone.

A photo captured by The Harvard Crimson shows that it was really Darrington's index finger.

The touchdown was reversed after a ruling of unsportsmanlike conduct against Darrington. The gesture has been debated by viewers, but the call stood.

The Crimson went on to beat the Bulldogs, 45-27, despite the reversed call.
