Big East to
Louisville: Connecticut touchdown a mistake
Big East commish apologizes to
Louisville for referee's call during Week 8 game against
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
