LOOK: Twitter explodes after referees steal TD from Michigan

The Michigan Wolverines are facing a tough test on the road against the Wisconsin Badgers today. In the second quarter, Donovan Peoples-Jones appeared to make a touchdown catch on a fade thrown by Brandon Peters. The call on the field was an incomplete pass due to DPJ having his right foot out of bounds. Even though his left foot was inbounds, referees ruled in the moment that his feet came down simultaneously, therefore, nullifying the catch Here’s a video of the controversial play.

Super slow motion reviews show that Peoples-Jones’ left foot came down just before his right, meaning the play should’ve been ruled a touchdown catch. However, after the play was reviewed the call was upheld.

In classic fashion, the Twitter Universe weighed in with some quick opinions and screenshots. Check out some of the best below.

The Michigan response.

The Buckeyes were trolling.

Today, at high noon, the No. 19 Michigan Wolverines (AP Poll) will square off against the undefeated and No. 5 ranked Wisconsin Badgers. Though the Wolverines chances of winning the Big Ten East are very slim at this point, that does not mean they will not be fired up to spoil the Badgers hopes of going to the College Football Playoff.

When the same two programs met last season, it was No. 4 Michigan who unended No. 8 Wisconsin 14-7 at the Big House. Though the final score was close, the Wolverines dominated in terms of total yardage 349-159 as they moved to 5-0 on the season.

The most memorable play of the game happened to come on Wisconsin’s final possession when cornerback Jourdan Lewis made one of the most iconic plays in Michigan football history.
