Statement from Tony Corrente, Pac-12 Coordinator of Football Officiating, regarding the final play in Saturday night's game at the Los Angeles Coliseum between USC and Utah, in which USC won 23-14.

"The final play of the game between USC and Utah was ruled properly and the touchdown did stand. There was a miscommunication between the officials and the press box that led to the confusion about the final score. We will make the appropriate adjustments to improve communication between on field officials and press box personnel so that we avoid any scoring issues in the future."
