Former college and NFL officiating executive Mike Pereira has weighed in on Saturday's night frankly insane ending to Arizona State's win over Wisconsin, saying Wisconsin should have been given one last play (to presumably kick what would have been a game-winning field goal).
About ASU last night, Wisconsin should have had another play. QB's knee was down. ASU laid on the ball - timeout should have been called.— Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) September 15, 2013
Nothing in that WISC-ASU sequence was reviewable— Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) September 15, 2013
Down two points in field goal range with less than twenty seconds, Wisconsin kneeled the ball to get in better position. An Arizona State defender jumped on it, mistakenly thinking the ball was loose. The clock was not stopped, and the Badgers watched as time ran out and the game was lost.
In addition to positions with the NFL and Pac-10, Pereira is widely known as a television analyst for FOX Sports.
