It looked like the Badgers registered said touchdown on a Joel Stave 1-yard pass to Jazz Peavy with just under 30 seconds remaining.
The play was called a touchdown on the field, after all, however the booth reviewed it and ruled that “the receiver did not complete the process of the catch.” Yep, the old Calvin Johnson rule.
“I thought he had a couple feet down, a couple steps,” coach Paul Chryst told the AP before adding, “doesn’t matter what I think.”
To be fair, Wisconsin, which turned it over five times, had three more tries to punch in it. But Northwestern’s stout defense denied the Badgers, even sacking and injuring Stave to make things more difficult, to hold on for the big 13-7 road win.
