There were some baffling calls in Week 5 of the college football season. Here are three of the worst.
We have reached another college football Saturday. Fans are watching their favorite teams hopefully get a win to really get their weekend off to the right start. With that, there will be some criticism of the officiating in the game, whether you are a fan of a team at the wrong end of the call or not.
Regardless of fandom or not, there were some truly baffling calls in Week 5 of the 2022 college football season. Here are three of the worst calls of the weekend.
3. Phantom fair catch and missed PI/targeting during TCU-OU
The TCU Horned Frogs essentially defeated the Oklahoma Sooners by halftime, as they put up 41 points and 479 yards of offense through the first two quarters of the game. Even so, the Horned Frogs were jobbed by two questionable calls.
One of the calls was a missed pass interference and potential targeting call on defensive back Trey Morrison, who hit tight end Geor’quarius Spivey high.
But perhaps the most egregious was late in the second quarter when wide receiver Derius Davis returned a punt. However, the officials determined that he called for a fair catch. Well, judge for yourselves.
You can understand why TCU head coach Sonny Dykes was so upset over the call. But, it certainly helped that the Horned Frogs scored a touchdown on that drive to extend their lead to 41-17.
