Video: Tennessee RB Pig Howard Fumbles For Touchback Trying To Stretch Past Goal Line In OT

What a game.

Last week, Tennessee beat South Alabama by just one touchdown. This Saturday, the Vols almost pulled off the upset of the week against No. 6 Georgia, but tragically fell just short. In overtime, Vol running back Pig Howard fumbled the ball into the end zone for a touchback, setting Georgia up for the game-winning field goal.

It's hard to fault Howard for the fumble -- he was trying to stretch the ball across the goal line for the score. Unfortunately, the mistake cost Tennessee a very well-fought game. Here's a video of the play:

Georgia's title hopes are still alive.
