Tech, Miami and ACC officials plan an 11 a.m. conference call today to discuss how to react to Hurricane Wilma, which forecasters say could hit Florida on Saturday. One possibility: Try to beat the hurricane by playing the game Friday night. The Big East Conference says game officials were wrong in failing to call a penalty on an onside kick by West Virginia in its victory over Louisville. “We’re acknowledging that a mistake was made on the play,” associate commissioner John Paquette said Tuesday. “We don’t have a formal statement on it.” With the Cardinals leading 24-14 in the fourth quarter Saturday, the Mountaineers attempted an onside kick, sending a high looping ball in the air. Louisville receiver Jimmy Riley tried to catch the ball but was hit by a West Virginia player and the Mountaineers recovered. Unlike a kickoff that rolls on the ground, which is fair game for any player after it goes 10 yards, the receiving team must be allowed to field a ball in the air. A penalty flag was thrown but was waved off after an officials’ conference on the field. The Mountaineers kept the ball at their 48, drove for a field goal and scored another touchdown to tie the game and force overtime. The Mountaineers won 46-44 in triple overtime. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino wouldn’t hang the result of the game on that one play. Another possibility: Reschedule the game for Nov. 19, Tech’s lone remaining open date. That would force Miami and Wake Forest to push forward their scheduled ESPN Thursday night game from Nov. 17 to Nov. 12. A third possibility: Keep the game scheduled for noon Saturday on ABC for now and wait to see where the storm goes. “If it follows the course it’s on right now it’s almost dead certain we’ll have to move it one way or the other,” Tech athletics director Dave Braine said. “The safety of the fans and the players is the most important thing so we’re going to do whatever is necessary to take care of those things first.” WR may be released Alabama receiver Tyrone Prothro is expected to be released from the hospital in a few days after breaking two bones in his left leg and developing an infection following surgery. Prothro has been hospitalized the past two weeks, and doctors are optimistic for a full recovery. He most likely will miss the rest of the season. Alabama team physician Les Fowler said Prothro’s family had requested that no details of his status be released since he had emergency surgery following the Florida game Oct. 2. WR out for season Southern Mississippi star receiver Antwon Courington will miss the rest of the season after injuring a knee in last week’s victory over Central Florida. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament and cartilage in his left knee during the 52-31 victory, the team said. He will have surgery Oct. 26. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
