there was still a lot of time left and the defenses were not getting stops. you take the 1 as long as you can and wait until the last possible moment to go for 2.
when they failed on the attempt it made it possible to lose if OSU scored a TD at the end of the game.
they should not have gone for 2 until after the Bergeron TD in the final minute.
