A second breakdown occurs on the play: Ripley Booth could not tell whether the ball the scoreboard due to poor live and lack of other camera angles of the kick.

The live shot was a field-level look from behind Eastern Washington, with cuts upside down. There were cameras above the end zone behind the bulge, but it is unclear whether they were part of the broadcast of Big Sky.

With Ripley Booth unable to see the ball on the scoreboard, and without a secondary to confirm, Eastern Washington was out of luck.

Big Sky did not comment on the call as of early Sunday.

Update: The conference said in a statement Sunday night that it reviewed “additional footage” and determined that the officer missed the call. It also stated that the kick was not reviewable as the ball went from the top to the top.

The conference states that the physical setup of the scoreboard and catwalk directly overhead in this endzone (Six) of the Kabaddi Dome creates unique conditions. “In view of these situations, Big Sky is evaluating mechanics where officials are in a better position during a field goal or extra point attempt to evaluate these types of plays.”
