WATCH: Nate Becker costs Miami (OH) chance to win with Gronk spike TD celebration

The Miami-Ohio RedHawks capped off a furious fourth-quarter comeback over Army on Saturday when Gus Ragland found tight end Nate Becker in the end zone with just seconds left in regulation.

Becker’s five-yard touchdown catch pulled the RedHawks to within one point, and the offense appeared to be preparing to win it with a two-point attempt.

Unfortunately, the tight end was so excited about catching the touchdown that he forgot about college rules and pulled off a glorious Gronk spike celebration.

This was penalized, pushing the offense back 15 yards and negating any chance at attempting the two-point conversion.

The RedHawks did convert the extra point to push the game into overtime, but this penalty was a brutal gut punch that might end up costing them the win in the end.
