(GIF) TCU Has Punt Return Called Back Due to Suspect Fair Catch Ruling

So far this evening, the matchup between the TCU Horned Frogs and the Texas Tech Red Raiders hasn’t exactly been able to live up to the standard they set for themselves in last season’s 56-53 triple overtime shootout, won by the Red Raiders.

Actually, this game has been sloppily played from the start. Both teams are not living up to the billing of the high-powered, fast-paced Big 12. The big plays have been few and far between.

One big play that did seem to make its way into this game was a fourth quarter punt return by TCU’s Brandon Carter. Carter fielded a punt from Texas Tech and took it back to the house. However, the scoring play was called back and the points were taken off the board.

Why was the punt called back? Well, the referee crew decided that the motion that Carter made with his arms constituted a signaling of a fair catch.

Now, you can be the judge. Did Carter call for a fair catch, or not?
