That run off simply prevented the inevitable, a failed drive late with 10 seconds left and no timeouts. Hard to get too broken up about it. More annoyed that PSU fumbled it away a play after Robinson would have scored a TD had he not been interfered with. They got the PI call, but their refusal to go for the jugular was annoying. So many predictable first-down runs. Not taking anything away from UCF (their defender did what he had to do to take away a sure TD, and they controlled the offensive line of scrimmage most of the night), but PSU's predictability and mistakes (hello tackling) makes it a deserving loss. Perhaps one they will learn from.
