Utah WR drops ball on goal line, Oregon returns it for 99-yard TD

Sunday November 9th, 2014

Utah receiver Kaelin Clay thought he had caught a touchdown pass to give the Utes a two-score lead over Oregon, but Clay dropped the ball just shy of the goal line.

The first Oregon player who picked up the ball ended up dropping it as well, but junior linebacker Joe Walker picked it up and ran 99 yards for an Oregon touchdown.

Walker had several blockers in front of him and only one potential tackler. 

Instead of being down 14-0, Oregon tied the game at seven. 

After the play, Clay was distraught on the Utah bench.
