After a blown call that had a major impact on the outcome of Notre Dame-Cal, the ACC reportedly suspended an official.

Matthew Fitzgerald, who was the linesman for the game, called Cal offsides on a crucial field-goal attempt by the Irish, but after a review no Cal players were even close to being offsides.

The blown call led to Fitzgerald’s suspension, but he reportedly ended up working a Notre Dame game for a second week in a row.

The ACC assigning Fitzgerald to a second straight Notre Dame game even after being suspended will cause many to question what caused the mishap.

Notre Dame has a bye week this week, so Fitzgerald won’t be on the officiating crew, but we’ll see if he works the next Notre Dame game.
