Just when you think the Pac-12 Conference has fixed its referee problem, they seem to just get worse.
In the second quarter of the Oregon-Washington State game, the officials lost track of the down situation and ultimately the Cougars lost a down. But instead of fixing it right then and there, they waited for two plays where WSU eventually had to punt.
You’re not supposed to be able to go back a couple of plays and pretty much go back in time that far to correct something like that. So after the Ducks had received a punt, Washington State was able to have a 3rd-and-17 all over again.
Fortunately for Oregon, it didn’t cost the Ducks as WSU failed to convert the third down, again, and had to punt, again.
On the telecast, official “expert” claims the replay official can determine something like this as long as possession didn’t change hands. Did it did change hands with the punt and no one has ever seen a situation like this before.
Only in the Pac-12.
