You have to wonder what the referees thought they saw when they called pass interference against Pitt cornerback K'Waun Williams early in the fourth quarter. Williams made a perfect play on an Everett Golson pass to Tyler Eifert on fourth and four -- leaping up, playing the ball the whole way and deflecting it. Unfortunately for the Panthers, the officials saw the call differently and flagged Pitt for pass interference. What may have stung even more for the Panther is that it not only kept the Fighting Irish's drive alive, but they scored on the next play to make it a one-score game. Was this another case of hometown officiating benefitting Notre Dame? Decide for yourself based on the gif below from Bleacher Report.
