Now that Bowl Season is wrapping up, we have all had a chance to see our favorite teams in games officiated by refs from neutral conferences. How do you think the conferences stack up on officiating, either good or bad?
I am an Arizona fan and my opinion of Pac 12 refs is that they struggle at marking the ball accurately. It goes both against and for the Wildcats, but you can see where the ball was at the end of a play and have no idea whether it was a first down or not.
Two years ago it seemed like the Conference USA officials did a better job in the Alamo Bowl than I was used to seeing from Pac 12 refs during the season. Pac 12 teams were featured on this year's list of most penalized teams. Let's see what everyone else thinks.
