Judgement calls where the Official is the only one with the needed angle are hard to dispute. From his angle he is the only one to see where the contact is and by the way the defenders head dips, I believe the WR catches the face mask when pushing off. Now the argument can be made that it's too technical of a call, but that is for the B1G to decide and communicate to the coach and officials.And the one angle we don't see is the one the flag throwing official had. (looking straight down the goal line at ground level and even with the play). As we saw in the slow mo replay, the defenders upper body torqued backwards due to the push-off. I'm sure the backward torque the official saw was even more pronounced than the one we see from above and behind the play.
