A controversial call during Michigan’s loss to TCU in the College Football Playoff semifinal had the wide receiver involved in the play steaming even after the game was over.
In the second quarter, it looked like the Wolverines had a touchdown in the bag on a pass from quarterback J.J. McCarthy to wide receiver Roman Wilson, who caught the ball and appeared to fall back into the end zone. However, officials determined that when Wilson went down, the ball had yet to cross the plane and ended up 1 yard short of the goal line.
McCarthy then tried to hand the ball off to Kalel Mullings but he fumbled into the end zone and the Horned Frogs recovered – more points off the board.
TCU would win the game 51-45 in one of the biggest upsets since the inception of the CFP.

Wilson still appeared to be hot over the non-touchdown call after the game.
“I caught the ball and I was in the end zone,” he told the New York Post after the game. “It’s kind of some bulls— that they called that back.”
Missed calls and missed opportunities appeared to be the theme of the game. TCU defender Kee’Yon Stewart was accused of getting away with a targeting penalty on a tackle of Michigan receiver Colston Loveland late in the game as well.
“Fought our hearts out,” McCarthy said afterward. “There’s a lot of things that we could have done better. Can’t wait to watch the tape. But we’ll be back, and I promise that.”
