ACC to begin using collaborative instant replay for 2016 season

The replay system for the ACC will differ during the 2016 college football season, with the announcement that the conference will begin using collaborative instant replay.

The ACC announced the change, which will be similar to the NFL’s replay system, on Thursday.

“This is another step in enhancing the quality of instant replay within college football,” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said in statement. “Officiating remains one of the highest priorities for our league, and our coaches and schools value the opportunity to be state of the art in this area.”

The collaborative system will be used for all conference home games, including Notre Dame home games.

All replays will be reviewed by officials in the ACC offices in Greensboro, North Carolina, who will be able to communicate with on-site officials in real time through headsets.
