TWTW Bowling: "Excessive Celebration" Gives Syracuse Win

Adrian Hilburn caught a 30-yard touchdown with 1:13 remaining in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. After crossing the goal line, Hilburn saluted the crowd. He was flagged for excessive celebration. The penalty pushed Kansas State's two-point conversion attempt back 15 yards- from the 3 to the 18-yard line.

The attempt failed and the Wildcats lost to Syracuse 36-34.

The Orangemen had 498 yards of total offense- Delone Carter had 202 yards rushing with two scores of that total...

Here's the, um, penalty...

"I didn't see it, I heard he just did a salute, which is kind of bogus," Kansas State quarterback Carson Coffman said. "It's something you can't do, we know that. Adrian is our guy, we're not mad at him for it, but I thought it was a little bit of a bogus call."

Yeah, that's one word to use...
