Iowa State WR Marchie Murdock on end zone INT: ‘They robbed me’

When Iowa State receiver Marchie Murdock went to the end zone with the ball in his arms, he thought he had helped the Cyclones tie their game against Oklahoma State.

Instead, officials ruled the play an interception by Oklahoma State corner A.J. Green, who also came down with the ball in his arms. The turnover gave the Cowboys a 49-42 victory and likely ended the Cyclones’ Big 12 title hopes. Iowa State was understandably frustrated with the play, which was reviewed.

Murdock, in particular, was heated on Twitter.

Murdock was right in that simultaneous possession would’ve given the Cyclones a touchdown. But officials determined Green had possession first.

Murdock wasn’t the only frustrated Cyclone. Running David Montgomery also thought the play should’ve gone to Iowa State.

The Cyclones are 6-4 overall and 4-3 in the Big 12. It will require absolute chaos to get them into the conference title game.

But if you ask Murdock, Iowa State’s game Saturday shouldn’t have been decided on that play in the end zone.
