Campus Clicks: Bad weekend for refs, Texas DB retweets during halftime
Rough Day for Refs
Saturday was a tough day for numerous college football referees, with two inexplicable mistakes receiving serious coverage. Oklahoma State was given a free first down during their win over Kansas State that led to a touchdown later in the drive. In the Big Ten, refs made a crucial fourth down error that hurt Illinois. Luckily, the Illini still defeated Nebraska or Illinois fans would be losing their mind.
