Did Nebraska Play Dirty Against Ohio State? (Video)

Nobody expected Saturday’s showdown between Ohio State and Nebraska to be particularly close. One side has a Heisman candidate in Justin Fields and a championship-level coach in Ryan Day, and the other boasts Adrian Martinez and Scott Frost. This outing was decided before either team took the field.

What was a bit surprising, however, was the way the game ultimately went. On multiple occasions, fans and broadcasters were left divided on whether the Huskers were playing dirty or the referees were just picking on them.

This dynamic was encapsulated in a sequence that occurred with 10 minutes left to play in the fourth, when broadcaster Joel Klatt took issue with a targeting call against Nebraska.

Defensive back Deontai Williams’ ejection marked the second one of the day for the Huskers.

Needless to say, fans had some reactions.

So were the Huskers playing dirty against Ohio State? It seems to be a matter of individual opinion.

Ultimately, the Buckeyes walked away with a 52-17 victory.
