Oregon receiver Bryon Marshall nearly made a heartbreaking error in the third quarter of the national championship game. Marshall's 70-yard catch and run was almost wiped out by a premature celebration.
Luckily for Marshall, he hung on to the ball until it crossed the goal line, and not a split second longer.
Utah receiver Kaelin Clay was not as lucky earlier this season. In a game against the Ducks in November, Clay dropped the ball on the 1-yard line. Oregon picked it up and ran it back 99 yards for a touchdown.
While watching Monday's game, Clay had flashbacks:

It's alright, Kaelin. Your club didn't gain a new member.
