Video: Targeting Call On Iowa's Josey Jewell Reversed

A targeting call on Iowa's Josey Jewell was reversed on Saturday afternoon.

Targeting is one of the most controversial and confusing rules in college football. Referees are routinely criticized for how they interpret the rule, too. But Saturday, the crew working the Iowa vs. Wisconsin game definitely got one call right.

Iowa's Josey Jewell was initially called for targeting following his hit on Badgers quarterback Alex Hornibrook. Surprisingly, however, the call was reversed after replay. That's rare, if you're wondering.

Iowa and Wisconsin are tied at 0-0 midway through the second quarter of their rivalry contest.
