PASADENA — Some fans claim a controversial call made by NCAA referees cost the Badgers the Rose Bowl, and a West Allis eye doctor is doing something about it.

Dr. Eric Knight of Knight Vision and Glaucoma Specialists posted that any NCAA football referee could receive a free eye exam at his office due to a "lack of attention for eye care that has occurred" in the profession.

"Since we all now know that the offensive pass interference call, which potentially changed the outcome of [the] 2020 Rose Bowl was blatantly wrong, I will assume it was because the ref who called the play can't see," wrote Knight.

According to WTMJ Radio's Jay Sorgi, an offensive pass interference call against Wisconsin wide receiver Danny Davis was proven to be incorrect, costing the Badgers an opportunity to move the football toward a game-winning drive.

Knight Vision is offering a free, comprehensive eye exam and glasses for NCAA football refs.

"The offer is good for the entire year (Wisconsin residents are actually very forgiving and nice)," said Knight.
