Today's Ohio State-Maryland game came down to the final play, with the Buckeyes stopping the Terrapins on a two-point conversion attempt in overtime.

Ohio State emerged with a crazy victory, topping Maryland, 52-51, in College Park.

The referees appeared to miss a big call on that final play, though. Thankfully, it didn't end up costing the Buckeyes.

The officiating crew appeared to miss a Maryland player blocking downfield on an Ohio State defensive back, which led to a Terrapins' player being wide open.

These are the kind of calls that can easily go missed in moments like that. It wasn't the only missed call in a situation like that today, either.

Regardless, Ohio State emerged with the win, staying in the College Football Playoff race.
