MADISON (WKOW) -- There will be no apology to the Wisconsin football team. The Big Ten told Badgers head coach Paul Chryst, that the correct call was made, as Jazz Peavy's game-tying touchdown was overturned and ruled incomplete Saturday against Northwestern. It appeared Peavy had scored a touchdown after catching the ball and taking four steps before falling to the ground, but after review the officials ruled Peavy did not maintain control of the ball after hitting the ground. The Badgers ended up losing to Northwestern 13-7.

"I do think that everyone tries to get it right, I really do.So we put ourselves in a position, and we didn't finish it. That's where we can be better," Chryst said.
