Pac-12 commissioner: Errors made in replay review procedure

October 11, 2018 - 2:03 pm

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott says the has conference made procedural mistakes and will make immediate changes in how video reviews are handled during football games.

Scott was responding to a report by Yahoo Sports citing an internal document that showed a replay official believed he had been overruled by a Pac-12 executive on a targeting call during the Washington State-Southern California game

Scott says the conference has allowed for "ambiguity" in who is responsible for the final call and no longer will people in oversight roles be allowed input into specific calls. The Pac-12 is one of four Power Five conferences that use a replay review command center to assist on-field officials and in-stadium replay officials during conference games.
