WATCH: Did officials miss a Mizzou cheap shot on Jake Fromm?
The officiating in the Georgia-Missouri has given fans lots to talk about on Saturday. Add a non-call to the list.
On a second-down run in the fourth quarter, Georgia QB Jake Fromm acted like he still had the ball to sell the Mizzou defense on the fake. Tigers DE Tre Williams went ahead and hit Fromm as if he were holding the ball.
ESPN broadcaster Brian Griese called it a “cheap shot” by Williams. Griese, of course, was watching the play through the eyes of a (former) quarterback.
It’s a non-call that gave MU some life. UGA’s drive would stall out and the Bulldogs ended up attempting a field goal, which was blocked. A penalty on Williams would have obviously resulted in a first down.

Not surprisingly, many on Twitter were unhappy.

Official was looking straight at Fromm when he got that cheap shot and still didnt call it.

I guess that late hit in Fromm was legit but the tap by leadbetter was roughing
