MAC commish: Game can't be reversed
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP)
The head of the Mid-American Conference says there's no way to take away Syracuse's overtime win over Toledo despite a blown call on an extra point.
Officials on the field, multiple camera angles and plenty of slow motion. And Syracuse still got a win it shouldn't have. See the controversy.
Mid-American Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher said Monday that NCAA rules say there's no route to reverse the outcome once the game is declared over.
Toledo athletic director Mike O'Brien asked the Mid-American Conference to call for the Big East Conference to give Toledo the victory after a Big East official admitted that replay officials made a mistake in the Orange's 33-30 victory Saturday.
Video shows that Syracuse missed a late extra point but the officials ruled it good. Replay officials allowed it to stand.
Toledo then kicked a tying field goal to force overtime, but the Orange came back with a field goal to win.
