Nebraska fans are not happy with the officiating early in this evening's home game against No. 5 Ohio State.

The Buckeyes were on the receiving end of a questionable-at-best pass interference call that led to an early Justin Fields touchdown.

Huskers quarterback Adrian Martinez threw an interception on the first drive of the game, setting up a short field for Ohio State's offense.

Following a first down, the Buckeyes took a shot deep. The pass was incomplete, though Nebraska's defender was called for pass interference.

It didn't look like the Huskers' defensive back made contact before the ball got there.

Ohio State is leading Nebraska, 7-0, early in the first quarter.

The game is on ABC.
