Referees controversially do not look at replay of Tennessee fumble
There was controversy in Saturday’s game between Tennessee and Florida.
Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs fumbled the football on a 17-yard run near the Florida goal line. Referees spotted the ball on the 6-yard-line, despite the ball landing near the pylon and being a potential touchback with possession going to the Gators.
The Vols moved to the line of scrimmage quickly, and the officials decided not to review the call before Tennessee snapped the ball. Tennessee scored two plays later, moving ahead 14-7 with 8:18 left in the second quarter.
I can’t believe that Dobbs fumble out of bounds wasn’t reviewed, but ultimately that was the correct call. Ball out before pylon.

It was a fumble, but the ball rolled out of bounds and hit Dobbs before the pylon so why is Gary losing his mind? Still woulda been UT ball

Dobbs fumble looked clearly out before the pylon to me. But, I agree you have to review that.

After recovering a Josh Dobbs fumble, Tennessee is in the end zone two plays later. 14-7, Vols.
