NCAA okays instant replay in all 28 bowl games

INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA has approved the use of video replay review of on-field officials' calls during all 28 Division I-A bowl games.

The NCAA is allowing the use of video replays at all schools and conferences this season after the Big Ten used it for the first time last year.

Mark Womack, chairman of the NCAA's postseason football subcommittee and executive associate commissioner of the Southeastern Conference, said Thursday the use of replays during bowl games would create consistency with regular season games.

``It is the goal of everyone to have the best officiated bowl games as possible and we think instant replay will assist us in reaching that goal,'' he said.

Nine of 11 Division I-A conferences are using some form of video review this season. In July, the Collegiate Commissioners Association asked the NCAA to permit the use of the Big Ten's video review system in all bowl games.
