Iowa LB Josey Jewell was initially called for targeting Saturday against Wisconsin, but the call was reversed after officials took a second look.
The junior and heart of Iowa’s defense was flagged for roughing the passer after hitting Badgers QB Alex Hornibrook high. But Jewell didn’t lead with his helmet and made contact with Hornibrook’s shoulder.
Oh man. Josey Jewell with a targeting penalty.

Jewell has made 61 tackles through six-plus games and was a second-team All-Big Ten selection in 2015.
He was ejected in Iowa’s season opener against Miami of Ohio for targeting.
