North Carolina Head Coach Larry Fedora talks about the incident


GREENSBORO (AP) -- The Atlantic Coast Conference has issued one-game suspensions to North Carolina freshman Shakeel Rashad for colliding with a Duke player during a substitution, and three officials from the Duke-UNC and Florida State-Miami games.

In the Duke-UNC game, Rashad knocked down receiver Conner Vernon -- who was already lined up -- from behind while running in at the last moment from the sideline. The league also suspended head linesman Tyrone Davis and side judge Angie Bartis "for failure to adhere to correct mechanics of the game and rules related to player safety.''

The FSU-Miami officiating crew will receive letters of reprimand, while crew chief and referee David Epperley were suspended "for failure to properly administer the 10-second runoff rule'' at the end of the first half.
