SEC to experiment with third official in women’s volleyball

DI Women's Volleyball Championship: Nebraska beats Florida

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved an experimental rule allowing the Southeastern Conference to use a third referee for all video review in all 2018 regular-season conference matches instead of those duties falling to the second referee.

The third referee will have the final decision to confirm or reverse the original ruling or determine if the review was inconclusive. The third referee will sit at the scorer’s table with direct and easy access to the challenge review system monitor.

The NCAA Women’s Volleyball Rules Committee wants to see if the addition of a third referee speeds up the review process and removes any perception of the second referee’s inability to overturn crew calls.
