Brian Kelly: Florida State ‘Rewarded’ For Blown Coverage Against Notre Dame


Brian KellyBrian Kelly is still mad.

The Notre Dame head coach was puzzled Saturday night after his team had a potential game-winning touchdown called back for offensive pass interference. On Sunday, Kelly was still heated after the supposed pick play led to the Fighting Irish’s first loss of the season.

“But again, the play itself, in terms of what we ask our kids to do, it was pretty clear what happened on the play: Florida State blew the coverage and they got rewarded for it. It’s unfortunate,” Kelly said Sunday on a conference call with reporters, according to

Kelly also said that he has even less clarity on the call itself than he thought he had Saturday. The penalty was called on Will Fuller, not C.J. Prosise, which “just adds more uncertainty,” according to Kelly.

The win could end up costing Notre Dame a chance at the College Football Playoff. The Irish are off until a Nov. 1 date at Navy before ending the season with games against Arizona State, Northwestern, Louisville and USC.
