The Atlantic Coast Conference admitted the replay official erred in not looking at the final play of the North Carolina-Wake Forest game on Friday night, the result being the Tar Heels were denied a final play.

Game officials ruled that running back Michael Carter's forward progress had been stopped at the Wake Forest 43 as time expired in a 24-18 win for the Demon Deacons.

"Following a review of the available footage provided from the television broadcast, it has been determined that one second remained when the on-field official indicated that the ball carrier's forward progress had been stopped at the 43-yard line," ACC supervisor of football officials Dennis Hennigan said in a statement.

"Since the on-field officials ruled that time had expired on the play, the replay official should have stopped the game for further review and put one second on the clock. ... All disciplinary measures related to the replay officials are being handled internally and the ACC considers this matter closed."

North Carolina didn't have any timeouts but might have gotten a snap off after a replay review as officials would have spotted the ball at the 43 and started the clock on the referee's signal.

Officials immediately left the field after the final play.
