Pac-12 admits mistake in missed targeting call on UCLA LB

UCLA Kenny Young hit

The Pac-12 on Monday admitted an error in a missed targeting call during Saturday’s UCLA-Hawaii game.

UCLA linebacker Kenny Young was injured after being leveled by Hawaii’s Metuisela Unga in the first quarter:

Unga was not called for a penalty on the play despite clearly targeting Young with the hit to the head.

Pac-12 VP of Officiating David Coleman later came on TV and said the hit was legal as he bumbled through his appearance:

UCLA coach Jim Mora spent part of his Monday meeting with the media voicing his displeasure with the missed calls. The conference responded by sending a press release in which they acknowledged their error in not only missing the call, but also in Coleman’s TV explanation of what happened.

This won’t help UCLA nor the team’s injured players, but it could make Mora and the school feel a little better.
