Ohio State Fans Are Furious Over This Penalty Call vs. Minnesota
Many fans watching Thursday night’s Minnesota ·-Ohio State game couldn’t believe
that the officials missed a targeting penalty call late in the game.
Ohio State won 45-31 and was leading by that score with just under four minutes to
go. The Golden Gophers had the ball and were looking to drive into Ohio State
territory. Tanner Morgan threw a pass to Mike Brown-Stephens, who was then hit in
the head by Lathan Ransom.
Ransom led with his head and nailed Brown-Stephens in the helmet, yet somehow
targeting was not called.
Not only was targeting not called, but on a review, the officials said Brown-Stephens
had a catch and made a football move before fumbling. The lost fumble gave the ball
and game to Ohio State.
It’s truly amazing that they ended up making that call on the play.
