Video: Refs Called Back 75-Yard TD Run On Excessive Celebration Penalty

Missouri player dives for touchdown.

This was a terrible call.

Missouri and Missouri State are scoring at will today.

The two teams combined for more than 80 points in the first half, although the second half has cooled off quite a bit.

One reason more points haven't been scored in the second half is because the refs made a horrible call that took a touchdown off the board.

In the third quarter, Mizzou running back Damarea Crockett ripped off a 75-yard touchdown run, but it was called back due to excessive celebration.

The points were stripped off the board because the play was ruled as "live."The refs assessed a 15-yard penalty from the Missouri State 2-yard line, taking the Crockett touchdown off the board.

Missouri eventually settled for a field goal.
