WNDU cameras show ND's Allen was out of bounds on overturned touchdown

Upon further review of WNDU's own video footage, Armando Allen appears to indeed have stepped out of bounds on an early touchdown in the 1st quarter of Saturday's loss to Michigan that was overturned by officials after review.

On Saturday night, we showed you one WNDU camera angle that appeared to show no conclusive evidence that Allen was out. A second WNDU camera, however, shows the video above---which shows Armando's foot being out.

Of course, only the camera angles shown by ABC/ESPN really matter in this situation in terms of the officials overturning the call. The play was ruled a touchdown on the field, meaning replay officials needed conclusive evidence to overturn it.

No camera angle shown by ABC/ESPN showed anything conclusive enough to actual overturn the call from the field, where multiple officials on that sideline watching Allen's feet ruled it a touchdown.

So, regardless of the fact that Allen appears to actually be out, the call probably should have stood as a touchdown.

The Irish ended up settling for a field goal on the drive, meaning they lost four points because of the call.

Notre Dame lost the game by four points.
