ACC adds football replay-review center to aid game officials

AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. (AP) — The Atlantic Coast Conference is expanding its replay review system for football to include a review center at the league office to work with on-site officials this fall.

In a news release Thursday at the conclusion of its annual spring meetings, the ACC says the “collaborative” system will be used for league games and nonconference home games for league teams. That includes Notre Dame, an ACC member in all league sports except football that plays an average of five ACC schools annually.

The ACC has allowed coaches and replay officials to challenge rulings for review at the venue. Now replay officials at the ACC’s existing gameday operations center in Greensboro, North Carolina will participate in discussions with the on-site referee and replay official through the existing headset communication system.
