We are now less than 24 hours away from the College Football Playoff semifinal matchup between Michigan vs. TCU in the Fiesta Bowl. As it stands, the Wolverines are listed as a 7.5-point favorite over the Horned Frogs, and just about everybody thinks Michigan will wear TCU down to advance to the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 9. Well, the officiating crew has been released for Saturday's game, and that announcement will have some Wolverines' fans cringing.
Who is officiating Michigan vs. TCU in the Fiesta Bowl?
According to FootballZebras.com, the officiating crew for the Fiesta Bowl between Michigan and TCU is as follows. (Note: Ignore the game time as the game starts at 4:00 p.m. ET, not 8:00 p.m. ET)
As noted by Chris Balas of The Wolverine, Chris Garner, who will be the center judge on Saturday, is an Ohio State grad.
Nation, could a close call end up going in favor of TCU because Garner went to Ohio State? Probably not. But if it happens, don't say we did not warn you!
