Purdue thought for a few seconds it had scored the potential game-winning touchdown to complete what would've been an amazing late comeback against Minnesota on Friday.

The officials, however, overturned the score while making a controversial offensive pass interference call, and then the Golden Gophers intercepted Boilermakers quarterback Jack Plummer to escape with a 34-31 win.

"I did not get a good explanation. Your guess is as good as mine," Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm said postgame, according to Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.

"I wish I could comment what I really think," he added. "... I just know there was a touchdown (Minnesota) caught earlier in the game, about the same area on the slot receiver, he gave a little nudge and they didn't call that. I'll just stop there."

Minnesota defensive back Phillip Howard, who was covering Payne Durham on the play, didn't comment about whether the tight end pushed him before making the catch.

"Refs made a call," Howard said, according to Rittenberg.

The end of the game set social media ablaze:
