Referees miss pass interference in Ohio State-Penn State game
Ohio State fans are still steaming about a pass interference call they feel the referees missed in the final two minutes of Saturday’s loss at Penn State.
The Buckeyes were stunned by the Nittany Lions 24-21 in Happy Valley after allowing a touchdown with around four minutes left. They got the ball as far as their 42 when JT Barrett went deep for James Clark with a second down pass. Then this happened:
Many observers felt a pass interference penalty flag should have been thrown.
Even Buckeyes fan LeBron James did not like the call:
That was pass interference man!!!

No penalty was called and Barrett was sacked twice to end Ohio State’s effort.
It sure stinks when officials miss a call like that, but Ohio State fans should be the last ones to complain about it.
