Bo Nix calls out officials: We never get those calls
Bo Nix is not happy with the officiating crew in Saturday’s Auburn-Georgia game.
The Tiger quarterback vented about what he felt were a lack of calls that went AU’s way. Speaking to reporters, Nix pointed to a no-call on a fourth-down pass play before the half.
Nix and many Auburn fans felt Ze’Vian Capers was interfered with on the incomplete pass. The refs did not call a penalty and Georgia took over on downs. Nix felt flags would have been thrown if it were UGA on offense and Auburn on defense.
“The guy completely grabbed him,” Nix said, per Nathan King of 247Sports. “Stuff like that we don’t ever get (called); it changes the game. If that had been them, they would have called it.”
Nix had more thoughts on Saturday’s officiating.
“I always feel like there are some questionable calls in big moments,” the AU quarterback told reporters, per AL.com’s Tom Green. “There were a few today…. It’s hard to make a play on the ball when they’re that aggressive. But I guess the officials were letting them play today and we should’ve been more aggressive.”
Nix was 21-of-38 passing for 217 yards and an interception in the 34-10 loss.
