Close call goes Bearcats' way

CINCINNATI -- A few BCS title contenders have been bailed out by favorable calls this year.

Count Cincinnati in that group now.

Isaiah Pead fumbled at the goal line, and West Virginia recovered in a huge play. But replay officials ruled that Pead broke the plane with the ball in his hand before the fumble.

It was really, really close. And as Pat Forde says, tie goes to the undefeated team.

That seems to be the theme of the season so far. I think we could hear about that overturn for quite a while.
