Michigan Wolverines fans threw towels on the field in Saturday night’s game against Notre Dame as a protest against controversial pass interference.
The Wolverines were called for pass interferences in the middle of the third quarter while they were 17-0. There did not seem to be any pass interference on the piece. Even worse, the call erased what would have been an interception.
