Sean Clifford, Michael Penix Jr. Still Debating Indiana’s Infamous Two-Point Conversion

It’s been 239 days since Penn State football lost to Indiana, but the debate over that infamous game-ending two-point conversion is still raging on.

In a video posted to Twitter Monday morning, Sean Clifford and Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. jokingly debated the critical overtime play while attending a football camp in Atlanta. They even pulled up the replay review in slow motion to examine its nitty-gritty details.

“It doesn’t matter. I broke the plane!” Penix said.

“But you were down, though!” Clifford said, laughing.

Despite his best efforts, Clifford and the Nittany Lions will likely never get the closure they’d like. Penix’s conversion ultimately led to a huge 36-35 Hoosiers win that catapulted the team toward the upper echelon of the Big Ten and, honestly, derailed Penn State’s entire season. Penix’s season ended prematurely when he tore his ACL in late November.

Still, the game’s officiating was controversial at best. Penn State fans fondly referred to it as “absolute bullshit,” while betting sites like DraftKings even offered refunds to pissed-off gamblers who took Penn State’s money line against the Hoosiers.

Penn State will host Indiana at Beaver Stadium on Saturday, October 2. Hopefully, Penix and Clifford can settle things once and for all when they meet on the gridiron next.
