Big 12, MAC suspends Oklahoma State-Central Michigan officiating crew


Yesterday’s ending to the Oklahoma State and Central Michigan game was certainly a controversial one. The Chippewas had been hit with an intentional grounding call on the penultimate play of the game, but were given an untimed down, which they used to score on a wild Hail Mary/lateral play.

Because of this controversial ending, all 10 officials from the game have been suspended for the next two games.

The MAC suspended the eight referees on the field, while the Big 12 have suspended two replay officials.

“After a thorough review and evaluation of the entire Central Michigan at Oklahoma State contest, we have decided to suspend the officiating crew for the next two consecutive weeks,” MAC coordinator of officials Bill Carollo said in a statement.

“NCAA rules permit instant replay to correct egregious errors, and it is unacceptable that it did not occur in this situation,” Big 12 coordinator of officials Walt Anderson said.

The two replay officials will also not be eligible to work a bowl game this year.
