Tennessee fans furious over no targeting review, other officiating calls against Alabama
Tennessee fans are upset that the officials did not review a potential targeting foul on Alabama.
In the first half of Saturday night’s game, ESPN cameras showed a hit that might have qualified as a targeting foul. In the clip below, an Alabama defender appears to launch and lead with the helmet to hit Hendon Hooker, making contact with the Volunteer quarterback’s helmet.

As one might expect, many of the replies and quote-tweets to the video are tagging the SEC Officiating Twitter account and conference commissioner Greg Sankey. Many Vols fans are arguing it’s not the only call or no-call that has gone in Alabama’s favor.
We’ll see if the SEC addresses the complaints and lack of a review on the hit.
Alabama leads Tennessee 24-17 in the third quarter.
