GREENSBORO, N.C. (WTVD) -- The ACC announced Sunday they are suspending the officiating crew as well as the replay official and communicator after the Miami at Duke game Saturday night.
The game came down to a final play where in dramatic fashion using a series of lateral passes, Miami scored a touchdown. Originally there was a flag on the play against Miami for a block in the back but after a lengthy review, the call was overturned and the touchdown stood.
Some viewers also said that one of the Miami players was down when he caught the ball, which would have ended the play as well as the game.
Many fans took to social media to criticize what they said was poor officiating against both teams throughout the game.
In a statement released on the Atlantic Coast Conference's website, the entire crew will be suspended two games for the "series of errors during the final play of the game."
The announcement came after the league's weekly review of game footage which includes reports and interviews with officials and administrators.
The errors listed are:
"The quality of our officiating program is of the highest importance to the league and its schools, and the last play of the game was not handled appropriately," said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. "Officiating is an extraordinarily difficult job but our players, coaches, programs and fans deserve the best that can be offered. We will continue to strive to meet that standard."
