College football officially has a problem. Instant replay has gotten in the way of the game.
Saturday's Hawaii-Louisiana Tech game took 3 hours 56 minutes to play. There were numerous stoppages, including a 22-minute delay in the second quarter while officials tried to figure if Hawaii had been given five downs to secure a first down.
"I'm still waiting to find out what happened there," Louisiana Tech coach Sonny Dykes said.
It's not uncommon to see 7-10 stoppages per game to review on-field calls, but if replay is being used to keep track of downs, then it's time college football take another look at how the technology is being used.
Update: The Western Athletic Conference has issued an apology for the 22-minute delay in the game.
