Held Ball Call in U of L vs. WSU Game, Should Bring Death to Possession Arrow (Video)

Three things to point out. 1- The refs weren’t very good. 2- It was a bad call 3- The possession arrow should be abolished. Similar to the knee down rule in College Football, it just doesn’t make sense to have anymore. It cost Wichita State an opportunity to tie the game.
