Injury to official why Fitz didn't challenge spot

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Coach Pat Fitzgerald said he didn't challenge what appeared to be a bad spot on third-and-1 in the second quarter of Saturday's loss to Penn State because an official was injured on the play, giving Big Ten officials several minutes to review the spot on their own.

"If they had any question they would have buzzed it down," he said. "When they've got that amount of time they typically get it right. I've got to trust in the replay official. In my mind, I have to think they didn't get a clean look and there's not indisputable video evidence to overturn it. I can look at the coaches' copy and have my own opinion but if it doesn't show up on the TV copy the officials see you can't question that."
