Nico Collins addresses controversial pass interference: 'I felt like it was a terrible call'
Nico Collins definitely didn’t think he deserved to be flagged for offensive pass interference against Penn State.
In a hard-fought, one-score loss on the road, every play proves to be vital. That was definitely the case Saturday night in Happy Valley, and more than a few plays went against Michigan early on.
One play in particular that drew the ire of fans was an offensive pass interference call on Collins. There definitely appeared to be a lot of back-and-forth on the play between Collins and the defender, but the flag ultimately went against the Wolverines.
Here’s a look at the play from TheWolverine.com on Twitter to refresh your memory:

On Tuesday, Collins was asked about the controversial call. He admitted that he felt like it was a terrible call, but Collins also understands there’s nothing that can be done about it:
“I felt like it was a terrible call,” explained Collins. “We were both competing for it, and I ended up with it, but it was on me. It is what it is. Can’t do anything about it.”
