Kirk Herbstreit Weighs In On No-Call At End Of Ohio State at Penn State Game

ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit has weighed in on the controversial no-call at the end of the Ohio State vs. Penn State game.

Penn State upset Ohio State on Saturday night, but of course, the win didn't come without controversy. On the Buckeyes' final drive, J.T. Barrett attempted to hit wideout James Clark on a deep ball that would have put the team in field goal range. As Clark went to catch the ball, he was grabbed by Penn State defensive back Jordan Smith. The ball hit off of Clark's facemask, and no call was made.

Truth be told, it doesn't look like Clark was going to catch it anyway. Either way, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit has weighed in on the situation. He acknowledged that in slo-mo, it looks like pass interference, but he doesn't blame the refs for not making the call in that situation.

Here's the play, if you missed it.

Ohio State is no longer undefeated, but its season is not over. They'll need to win out and win the Big Ten to have a shot at the College Football Playoff.
