Although the Music City Bowl between Kentucky and Northwestern had an entertaining finish, that’s not what we’ll remember.

Frankly, the officiating was pitiful, and it started in the second quarter when Kentucky RB Benny Snell was ejected for making contact with the official. Following a run, it appeared the official tried to help Snell up, but Snell mildly pushed away his hands and proceeded to get up on his own. The official then ejected Snell, and social media was beside itself.

Following the game, Music City Bowl referee Chris Coyte was available and met with the media about the ejection, as noted by The Tennessean’s Adam Sparks:

It wasn’t just Kentucky either. Northwestern’s Paddy Fisher was ejected for targeting, and Wildcats’ coach Pat Fitzgerald blasted the officials at halftime.

Northwestern beat Kentucky 24-23.
