Purdue fans are upset about potential missed tripping call that left Dedrick Mackey hobbled after INT vs. Wisconsin
The Wisconsin-Purdue game didn’t have the most eyeballs watching it this weekend. In the Big Ten — and the entire country — Ohio State-Penn State was king.
Wisconsin-Purdue still had massive implications attached to it, though. The Badgers needed to win to stay alive in the Big Ten West and Purdue needed to be victorious in order to keep its postseason hopes alive.
Wisconsin ended up winning 45-24. The Badgers now face Minnesota next week for the right to go to Indianapolis. During the Wisconsin-Purdue game, though, there was a controversial non-tripping call that took place during a Boilermakers interception.

I do not like dirty play in any sport. How do the refs miss this Wisconsin player kicking a Purdue player. pic.twitter.com/mHYtayKDO2

It looks as though Wisconsin tight end Jake Ferguson tripped Purdue’s Dedrick Mackey during his interception. That’s not allowed, of course.
Then again, is it conclusive that Ferguson intended to trip Mackey? The referees may have seen it and decided against throwing a flag on the play. Or, they missed it completely.
What are your thoughts?
