Cotton Bowl: Fox crew agrees with pivotal interference call against OSU

REMOTE PATROL — Fox rules expert says replay showed OSU's Tyler Patmon “rode him all the way down the field and actually grabbed him with his left hand before the interception.”

Chelf earlier had made several big runs, including a 23-yarder as the Cowboys drove for a possible winning touchdown.

“He continues to find the back door,” Davis said.

Desmond Roland's 2-yard touchdown run had given OSU its only lead of the night.

“Look at the power and drive of Desmond Roland, who simply would not be denied,” Davis said.


-- OSU linebacker Caleb Lavey had several near interceptions, but still earned compliments from Davis for his heady play.

“He is a player who is a victim of athletic profiling. People look at Caleb Lavey and say he's not an athlete. He can't make those type of plays. You know how he makes them? With his mind. He's an academic All-American. He knows where to go.”

-- Davis thought the Tigers should have played backup quarterback Maty Mauk more, particularly after his touchdown drive in the second quarter. “The way he is playing, you go with the hot hand.”
