Oregon thought that it had won the game on the final play with a spectacular catch in the end zone. Game officials, however, ruled that the receiver was out of bounds when he caught the ball. As a result, Oregon State won the game. After the game a sample of 200 fans was asked whether the catch should have been ruled a touchdown.

Use a chi square test of independence to test a null hypothesis that fan opinion is independent of school affiliation for the populations represented here. Use a significance level of 5%.
