According to the AP’s Ralph Russo, the NCAA coordinator of officials agreed with a non-call on the play, stating that the contact on the play was “mutually initiated” by players on both teams.

Clemson won the game 35-31 to capture their first title since 1981. There was some controversy about their win thanks to Clemson using multiple pick-plays like this, but it looks like the NCAA has no problem with their new national champion.
