It was definitely a fumble, but then the play was whistled dead before anyone touched it and the Southern Miss players quit going for the ball at the whistle. Should have gone back to Southern Miss. Glad it didn't since no one can say that gave us the game, but dead ball is dead ball. Any idea why they gave it to UTSA?

CUSA refs are terrible. That’s why it didn’t get overturned.

I was at the game, feeling at the time was that the refs thought he'd gone out of bounds prior to the fumble, but it was a typical CUSA ref call blowing the whistle.

RE: FINAL: USM 31 UTSA 29
After watching the replay several times, I noticed several things:

1. Jones let up on the block too soon, which allowed the defender to be able to get his hand in and knock out the football

2. Staggers was holding the ball like a loaf of bread which allowed the hand to get in.

3. The whistle was blown when the ref thought Staggers was out of bounds, and our players let up...However, the UTSA players didn't let up.

But, once the play is whistled dead, it's dead. If he had not been out of bounds and broken free for a TD, it shouldn't have counted either.

Any non-Eagle comments on the play?

He was not out of bounds...I looked. Also, neither was the UTSA player when he knocked the ball out..

UTSA fan here, and I agree completely. Play is over once the whistle is blown. Should have been USM ball. C-USA refs are garbage.
