WATCH: Rutgers Throws Challenge Brick, but Told There’s no Video Review Available

Correction: The disputed call took place at the end of regulation, not during sudden victory. 


UNIVERSITY PARK– It seems like every sport has video replay in some form. 

Apparently, the Penn State-Rutgers BJC dual meet in Happy Valley is a rare instance where that wasn’t the case. 

The night started, as usual, with the 125-pound match between No. 2 Braeden Davis (Penn State) and No. 19 Dean Peterson (Rutgers). 

Regulation was seconds away from being over. The Rutgers coaching staff threw a challenge brick.

Rutgers was challenging for a neutral danger call that would have given Peterson the win

But one of the officials said “We don’t have it” to the Rutgers coaching staff, with “it” being replay, and Davis ended up winning 4-1 in sudden victory.

The Big Ten Network’s broadcast also said it had not been given an explanation.

Davis is already one of the best in the country at 125 pounds as a true freshman. With that said, each of his last two matches has ended controversially. Again Ohio State at Rec Hall two Fridays ago, Vinny Kilkeary got what many felt should have been a match-winning takedown in the final seconds. But the officials disagreed and didn’t change their ruling after video review, which Penn State’s usual home, Rec Hall had. 

Rec Hall is nearly 100 years old and more than half the size of the Bryce Jordan Center. Yet, Rec Hall had video replay that night. The Jordan Center didn’t have it for this one. 

Nittany Sports Now doesn’t yet know why there was no replay and hopes to find out soon. For what its worth, here’s what has to say about the replay rules. It can be found in article five
