For Michigan to beat undefeated Wisconsin on Saturday, most agreed the Wolverines had to play their best game of the season against the Badgers.
Little did they know, Michigan would also be playing against the referees.

Trailing 7-0 in the second quarter, Wolverines quarterback Brandon Peters hooked up with Donovan Peoples-Jones on what would have been a touchdown…had the referees got the call correct.
After calling the pass incomplete on the field, the referees reviewed the play to make sure they got it correct. But as you can see in the photo below, Peoples-Jones got his left foot down in bounds before the right foot landed out of bounds.

Today, at high noon, the No. 19 Michigan Wolverines (AP Poll) will square off against the undefeated and No. 5 ranked Wisconsin Badgers. Though the Wolverines chances of winning the Big Ten East are very slim at this point, that does not mean they will not be fired up to spoil the Badgers hopes of going to the College Football Playoff.
