Refs miss Deandre Baker dropping ball before goal-line on 56-yard pick-six

Jesse Reed

The Georgia Bulldogs got a huge early break Saturday against South Carolina. Deandre Baker benefited from a horrible dropped pass, picking off Jake Bentley’s and taking it back 56-yards for six points.

This score put the Bulldogs up 7-0 very early in the game. However, Baker actually dropped the ball before it crossed the goal line, but Georgia kicked the point-after attempt through the uprights before the play could be reviewed.

In a huge game like this, this mistake could have lasting ramifications.
