Fans hammer SEC officials for questionable non-calls in Georgia-Texas A&M game
Georgia remains alive in the College Football Playoff hunt with a 19-13 win over Texas A&M. Some fans think the conference officials helped the Bulldogs beat the Aggies.
Numerous calls and non-calls went in UGA’s favor. No call for offensive pass interference on George Pickens’ touchdown and no call for pass interference Texas A&M’s third-down play that resulted in the Aggies’ final punt of the game loom large in a six-point decision.
Even former Bulldog David Pollack said Georgia got away with a penalty on the third-down pass.
That was clearly defensive holding or pass interference on Georgia’s defense. Got away with that one.

The mentions for the official Twitter account of SEC officiating were, predictably, a bloodbath:

Actually it’s the @SECOfficiating we failed to take into account in our game plan.

Bad look for SEC, it was almost blatantly obvious they wanted to make sure Georgia stayed at the fourth slot

Nothing for the SEC to gain if A&M wins. UGA is being “protected@
