ESPN video shows interference on Pianalto

Not to harp on this, because a team can't expect to always get this call at the end of a game, but it's clear from the ESPN video that Zack Pianalto was interfered with on the final play of North Carolina's loss to LSU.

The camera in the endzone clearly shows what happened. Pianalto cuts in front of the goal and is open, but LSU lineback Stefoin Francois reaches out with his left arm and has it on Pianalto. You can see Francois reaching across Pianalto as the ball approaches, although the ball is blurry in the video as it leaves Yates. This clearly could have been called pass interference. Even so, it's a ball Pianalto had a shot at, and could have caught.
