Interference penalties make secondary tentative

SHARE Interference penalties make secondary tentative

The Northwestern secondary had four pass interference calls on the day, three by senior cornerback Demetrius Dugar. All three of his penalties came on deep sideline routes when he was face guarding opposing receivers, which is legal in college football. There was also contact on all three plays.Safety Devon Fleming was flagged on a similar play on a drive that resulted in a touchdown. Two of Dugar’s penalties came on third-and-six or longer. The Orange scored touchdowns on both drives.Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said the penalties made secondary members more tentative, resulting in even more big plays.“That took our stinger away a little bit,” he said.
