Penn State got a big and controversial stop early in the fourth quarter.

With Penn State holding a 17-7 lead, Northwestern drove the ball to Penn State’s one and faced a fourth down.

Even though a field goal would have made it a one-score game, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald decided to go for it. The play was simple: A quarterback sneak from Ryan Hilinski.

The play happened, and officials ruled Hilinski short.

Some agreed with the ruling. Some didn’t. Regardless, the play never went under review.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the call.
