Report: Mitch Barnhart issues letter to Pac-12 over Music City Bowl officiating

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - Following the ejection of Benny Snell in the first half of the Music City Bowl, University of Kentucky Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart let his opinion be known that he didn't agree with the call.


Now, the Herald-Leader in Lexington is reporting that Barnhart has sent an official letter to the Pac-12 Conference due to the officiating.

Three days following the game, the Courier-Journal in Louisville reported that the Pac-12 told the Courier-Journal in a statement that "The Conference has no comment and will stand by the postgame statement provided to the pool reporter."


Snell told reporters following the game that he has a very strong passion for the game, and he felt that he didn't do anything wrong.
