Did Logan Thomas fumble? Rutgers touchdown looks more like Virginia Tech safety

ESPN

Khaseem Greene, one of the best players in Rutgers history, thought he scored a safety on Virginia Tech's first Russell Athletic play. It looks like he was right, though that wasn't the ruling.

Khaseem Greene found something to celebrate while celebrating, and that's just a sign of clean living. The announcers praised him for making a big play, and being that close to the quarterback is always a good thing, but it was more a mistake by Virginia Tech than anything excellent Rutgers did.

Virginia Tech's first snap whistled past Logan Thomas, with an apparent miscommunication the culprit. Greene closed on Thomas in the end zone, bringing him down for what looked like a two-pointer. But officials ruled the ball had bobbled out, and it was Greene who was able to capitalize.

But upon closer inspection, it's a wonder Virginia Tech didn't challenge the ruling. Thomas' knee looks to be down before the ball comes out. We don't think this was a fumble.

It'll likely matter, too, with two overmatched offenses unlikely to score very many points tonight. The score remains 7-0, Rutgers.
