Wisconsin WR Jazz Peavy tweets complaint over non-touchdown call

Sunday November 22nd, 2015

Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver Jazz Peavy complained on Twitter about his overturned touchdown during a loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

Peavy caught a pass on first-and-goal with less than 30 seconds left that would have tied the Badgers with the Wildcats, with Wisconsin then needing only an extra point to take the lead. Peavy’s catch was overturned and ruled incomplete after referees said the receiver did not control the catch all the way to the ground.

The Wildcats ended up holding the Badgers out of the endzone and securing the win. Penalties and replay reviews also took away two other Wisconsin touchdowns in the loss. 

Northwestern moved to 9–2 with the win, while the loss dropped Wisconsin to 8–3. You can watch the Peavy play below:
