Big East to Louisville: Connecticut touchdown a mistake

Big East commish apologizes to Louisville for referee's call during Week 8 game against Connecticut.

Big East to Louisville: Connecticut touchdown a mistake Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese called the Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich yesterday to apologize for the wrong referee call during the game against Connecticut (6-1) last week. According to the commish, the referee made a mistake by not acknowledging the fair catch signal given by Larry Taylor. Taylor, who indeed gave the signal, caught the ball and ran for a 74-yard touchdown. Due to NCAA rules, the signal could not be reviewed and the touchdown set the score to 7-7 in the third quarter. The Louisville Cardinals (4-4) lost the game 21-17 to the Huskies. According to reports, Mike Tranghese has punished the referee for missing the signal, but the details of the penalty are unknown at this time.

 On Saturday the Louisville Cardinals are playing the Pittsburgh Panthers (3-4) at home. Bookmaker has listed the Cardinals as the favorite to win the game with odds -475 and Pittsburgh are underdog at +395. The point spread on the Louisville vs. Pittsburgh game is sitting at -11 points chalk the Cardinals.
