Big Ten Issues Statement Regarding Saturday’s Game

Referee John O’Neill and replay official Tom Fiedler, the officials who worked Saturday’s matchup against Ohio State, have come under fire after missing two crucial calls that could have significantly altered the outcome of the game. A Christian Hackenberg pass that appeared to hit the ground was ruled an interception, and an obvious delay of game was not called on an Ohio State 49-yard field goal.

The Big Ten released a statement regarding the replay and clock issues today:

“In regards to the play that was called an interception on the field with 13:07 remaining in the first quarter, the video feed to the replay booth was tested and confirmed on Friday and prior to the game on Saturday, but at the start of the game, the booth was no longer receiving all available feeds. The technician in the booth followed procedure by contacting the production truck, which immediately began working on the issue. Due to these technical difficulties, only one isolated shot from the overhead camera was available and the view did not provide sufficient information to reverse the call. As a result, the play stood as called. The production truck rectified the technical issues shortly thereafter, and the replay booth had access to multiple feeds for the remainder of the game.”
