For those not interested in searching through the entire week's recap:
Trailing 27-24 at Minnesota with seven seconds to play, Ohio lined up to attempt a 53-yard field goal to tie. As is custom, Gophers coaches called a timeout just prior to the decisive kick in an attempt to ice Bobcats kicker Josiah Yazdani, who as is also the custom nonchalantly followed through with a warm-up kick. But wait!
Yes: In the seconds immediately following a pointless timeout by Minnesota, called with the express purpose to delay the end of the game, an intrepid official called a delay-of-game flag on Ohio because of Yazdanis unsanctioned kick. Now faced with a 58-yard attempt following the penalty, the Bobcats opted to scrap the field goal altogether and throw up a Hail Mary instead, which fell predictably incomplete. Gophers win, and Ohio coach Frank Solich is left to wonder what the hell just happened:
The thing that bothers me on that type of play, Solich said. Is that the ball gets snapped, so apparently the center doesnt hear the whistle, either. But somehow youre expecting the kicker to hear it when hes concentrating on the snap. The crowd is very, very loud. Hes following through to what, he thinks, is maybe the game-winning kick.
... [NCAA rules for delay of game snippet]...
Was Yazdanis kick deliberately advancing the ball after it is dead? Was it clearly designed to delay officials, even though the officials had just stopped the play in order to delay it? Is there any existing precedent or plausible justification whatsoever for that flag to have been thrown in that situation? I could go on, but before I get flagged for delay of column, Ill just answer: Nope.

From what I was told by someone who actually saw the game on TV, there was a noticeable delay between the whistle and the snap of the ball, so this was not the typical last second timeout where the offense can't stop a play about to start. The offense started the play after the play was whistled dead. Allegedly, anyway. IDK if this matters to the ruling. It is also not shown in the gif-clip attached to the article, since by the actions of the crew, apparently the whistle has already blown.

Usually if something is pretty controversial, the recap likes to bring it up. All the recaps I saw were from Big10 Network, who had broadcast rights to the game. They didn't mention anything about the penalty. Just went to the hail mary play.

Here's an article that shows a little more pre-snap.
