WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (AP) - The Pacific-10 has suspended a game official for missing a facemask call in Saturday's game between Southern California and Oregon State.
The play came on a hit that knocked an Oregon State player's helmet off.
Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement that the suspension was handed down because the hit was "blatant and dangerous."
The conference did not name the official or any players involved, but Trojans safety Taylor Mays hit Beavers receiver James Rodgers, removing his helmet after he caught a fourth-quarter touchdown pass.
