Ohio State linebacker Joshua Perry was originally penalized for targeting Saturday when he made this hit on Gophers quarterback Mitch Leidner. The penalty would have wiped out Vonn Bell's pick six and kept the game scoreless late in the first half.
But the officials overturned the call, telling Gophers interim coach Tracy Claeys that one replay clearly showed Perry's helmet hitting Leidner in the sternum. On Sunday, the Star Tribune obtained another clip of the hit that clearly shows Perry's helmet hitting Leidner's facemask. It helps explain why Leidner had a sore jaw.
