The Pac-12 Conference admitted Monday that the officials who worked the Wisconsin-Arizona State game Saturday night erred in the final minute.
Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said the league reprimanded the officials and took unspecified sanctions against them.
Wisconsin fell to Arizona State 32-30 when the Badgers weren’t allowed to run another play in which they would have clocked the ball and attempted a short game winning field goal.
The Badgers could have attempted the game winning field goal with :18 left in the game, but head coach Gary Anderson said if UW faces a similar late-game situation in the future, the staff will not change its approach.
Wisconsin is moving on now to preparations for their Big Ten opener, this Saturday afternoon against Purdue at Camp Randall Stadium.
