Toledo Loses Game Because Of Referee — And Replay Official — Blunder

  • Timothy Burke

Syracuse overcame a scrappy Toledo team in overtime thanks to a blown extra point call — one that replay officials didn’t overturn.

This extra point — which video clearly shows went wide left — left a three-point advantage which Toledo erased with a game-tying field goal on the last play of regulation — a field goal which, were the Syracuse XP properly declared no good, would have won the game for the Rockets.

Instead, the game headed to overtime where Syracuse won on an actually-good field goal.

UPDATE: The Big East put out a press release apologizing for the mistake.
