The first half of the FedEx Orange Bowl between No. 6 Wisconsin and No. 10 Miami featured two close calls that required the use of replay, with one ruling being made in favor of the Hurricanes and the other for the Badgers. Both ultimately led to Houston Texans defensive end and Wisconsin alum J.J. Watt calling out the replay official.
The first was Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor’s first-quarter fumble, with it being ruled on the field that the freshman was down by contact. Sure enough, upon further review the call was reversed, with Miami getting the football with it being ruled that the ball was moving before Taylor’s knee hit the ground.

The second call was Danny Davis III’s 20-yard touchdown catch, with the playing standing as called after being review, even though it did not appear Davis had crossed the plane of the goal line.

Following those plays Watt took to Twitter to question the replay official and essentially wonder if he’d had some “refreshments” beforehand.
Based off the last two reviews, video replay guy might be hammered… #OrangeBowl
