Toledo wants Saturday's game vacated

The University of Toledo filed a formal request to the Mid-American Conference to have their loss to Syracuse vacated.

The Big East announced Saturday night that Syracuse kicker Ross Krautman missed an extra point in the final minutes of the game. Game officials reviewed the attempt at the time, but did not overturn the call.

Toledo's athletic director Mike O'Brien filed a request to the commissioner of the Mid-American Conference, John Steinbrecher, to contact the Big East Conference and have the victory granted to the Rockets, according to Toledo Athletics.

The extra point gave Syracuse a 30-27 lead with 2:07 left in the game. Toledo marched down the field after the official's review and notched a field goal in the closing seconds to send the game into overtime. If the official overturned the call, that field goal would have given the Rockets the win in regulation. Instead, Syracuse defeated Toledo in overtime on a field goal from Krautman. 

If you watch the replay closely, you can clearly see the ball does not disappear behind the upright on the left of the screen.
