(Photo by Maxx Wolfson/Getty Images)On Tuesday afternoon, the Ohio State Buckeyes and Washington Huskies met in the Grandaddy of Them All – the Rose Bowl. The annual Big Ten vs. Pac-12 contest has been less than exciting thus far, as Ohio State has dominated the action on both sides of the ball.The Buckeyes hold a 21-3 lead and it doesn’t look like the Huskies have the firepower on offense to make a run.While the game hasn’t offered much, the officiating has been stellar and one official is going viral for what he did near the end of the first half.The official saw a balloon floating down to the field, jumped up, grabbed it with a pure display of athleticism and popped it on his way back to his officiating position.Check it out.I think this ref deserves the S-E-C! S-E-C! chant.— Bryan Fischer (@BryanDFischer) January 1, 2019That’s where we’re at with this game – stuck admiring the official’s hops and awareness on the field.Ohio State leads 21-3 at the half.last_img
