Ryan Day, back away! The Ohio State head coach was called for a sideline penalty mid-play in a very unique situation in the Buckeyes’ Week 6 matchup against Maryland.

In the fourth quarter of the Big Ten matchup, OSU quarterback Kyle McCord threw a huge 37-yard pass to Marvin Harrison, Jr. to pick up a first down on 2nd-and-33. A flag went down on the field, but it wasn’t holding or pass interference. No: Buckyes head coach Ryan Day had touched a referee and was called for sideline interference — certainly not something we see every day.

The penalty resulted in a loss of 15 yards, but the Buckeyes still had the first down. Lucky for Day, they scored on the next play to go up 27-17 over the Terrapins.
