VIDEO: 3-year-old explains phantom first down in Outback Bowl

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

One of the most baffling moments of the bowl season is pictured above. The referees in Tuesday's Outback Bowl awarded Michigan a first down when it seemed clear to the millions of people watching at home on their televisions that the ball was most definitely short of the marker. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier would do an angry dance quickly afterward to share his opinion of the call as well.

Thankfully, South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney used his super-human powers to right all that was wrong with the world on the next play. But three days later, we still haven't had an explanation as to how in the world this was deemed a first down.

So it's a good thing there's this 3-year-old girl on the Internet who is ready to break it down for us.

Oh, wait. She can't figure it out either. I guess we'll never know.
