MACtion 'beats' Oklahoma State, but not with casualties: The Central Michigan Chippewas outscored the Oklahoma State Cowboys 30-27 on one of those great Hail Mary-lateral combos, but only because the officiating crew mistakenly gave them an untimed down after OSU QB Mason Rudolph committed an intentional grounding penalty on 4th down with no time left on the clock. The entire on-field crew (provided by the Chips' Mid-American Conference) has been suspended for two weeks, and the replay crew (provided by the Cowboys' Big 12 Conference) has been suspended for two weeks and will not be allowed to officiate a bowl game this season.

I can't believe how composed Coach Gundy has been about this. I thought the conference was going to have to shelter those refs at an undisclosed location, but Gundy has largely held himself above the fray from what I've seen.

As a Chips fan I was watching the game and turned it off with 4 seconds left. (before CMU was awarded the ball) Dind't know they won until later that night, bad timing lol.
