Watch: Referees miss false start before Ohio State touchdown
The referees on Saturday night’s Big Ten Championship Game somehow missed an obvious false start on what turned out to be Ohio State’s go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter.
Just before Justin Fields threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to K.J. Hill, Garrett Wilson lost his footing and completely moved.
Badgers fans have a serious gripe here. Garrett Wilson clearly…well, you see it. How the official looks RIGHT AT IT doesn't see this I have no idea pic.twitter.com/fL7oTj9N81

Ohio State should have been pushed back five yards, but the refs missed it and didn’t call it.
Ohio State ended up taking a 24-21 lead on the play. After falling behind 14-0 and 21-7 at halftime, the Buckeyes stormed back in the second half and began dominating Wisconsin, scoring 24 straight points as of early in the fourth quarter.
