GREENSBORO, N.C. - Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford, after reviews of video tape replays and interviews with officials and game administrators, acknowledged that game management errors by the officiating crew occurred at the Clemson at NC State game played on Saturday, October 9.


"Our review of the situation involving penalties during the Clemson-NC State game, leaves no doubt that the officials errored in their application during the course of the contest," said Swofford. "The officials in this crew are extremely competent; however, the entire officiating crew works as a team and must be accountable as a team."


Each of the officials involved will serve a one-game suspension as determined by ACC Coordinator of Football Officials Tommy Hunt.
