When there’s a controversial call on the football field, who do you call? Mike Pereira, of course. Pereria gave his ruling on the crazy Wisconsin-Arizona State finish in tweet form Sunday. On Monday night’s #BTNLive, we asked the FOX Sports Rules Analyst to describe what he saw and rule what should have happened in those final chaotic and confusing seconds. Watch our segment with Pereira right here.
Earlier Monday, the Pac-12 released a statement that reprimanded the officials. BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart wrote a piece on that.
Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez had some strong words for the officials, as well, in a radio interview with thebig1070.com.
One, for example: “They were very much in a hurry to get off the field,” Alvarez said of the officials. “I would think you’re first job is to get things right.”
