Miami's Mario Cristobal 'made wrong call' not kneeling down

Miami coach Mario Cristobal took full ownership for the way the Hurricanes lost to Georgia Tech on Saturday, saying they should have taken a knee to close out the win.

Instead, Miami opted to run the ball with 33 seconds remaining and up 20-17. Don Chaney Jr. fumbled, and Georgia Tech recovered and went 74 yards in 25 seconds -- capping the 23-20 come-from-behind Yellow Jackets win with a 44-yard touchdown pass from Haynes King to Christian Leary.

"I made the wrong call," Cristobal said at his weekly news conference.
