Cal coach reprimanded for criticizing officials

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (AP) - California coach Jeff Tedford has been reprimanded by the Pac-12 Conference for criticizing officials days after a 36-33 overtime win at Colorado.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement Thursday that the league expects each "coach to adhere to our standards of conduct and to conduct himself or herself in a manner which will reflect credit on the institution and the Conference."

Tedford had said this week that officials incorrectly called a personal foul penalty on Trevor Guyton after the defensive end tackled Buffaloes running back Rodney Stewart at the end of a pass play. He said that Stewart wasn't ruled down and no whistle had blown. The play extended Colorado's touchdown drive in the third quarter Saturday.

The league didn't announce Tedford's penalty.
