On the play in the Walnut Heights game just before the pass interference call there was a penalty flag thrown at the end of the run but no call was made.

In the movie, the bus is seen going down Eisenhower Blvd; making a right on Scalp Ave; going past Pizza Hut and finally ending up at Walnut Heights school (Johnstown Vo-Tech). Going down the hill and making a right is going away from the school, not toward it.
Ampipe football state champion references (which did not exist):
1. Ampipe team entering the visitors locker room before the Walnut Heights game, they are touching the state champs football (think it says 1963 on it).
2. The trophy case at Ampipe HS lists the football state champions shown behind Coach Nickerson when the 2 cops are arresting/escorting Salvucci out of the high school.
Pennsylvania Interscholasitc Athletic Association (PIAA) didn't offically start holding state playoffs and championship games until 1988. Prior to that, the only football championships in PA were at the distict level.
During Walnut Heights game... with around 3 minutes left to play in the 4th quarter - it starts to rain as they continue to wind the clock down the field begins to get obviously wet and muddy - at around the 1:30 mark or so the field is completely flooded.... (Now I understand that those last few minutes of a football game can be stretched into alot more but the amount of water that has accumulated on the field in that time is astronomical....)
