Brian Kelly will call ref supervisor on pick call against Theo Riddick

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly disputed two calls late in the Irish's game against Pittsburgh on Saturday, but one in particular goes to the heart of the spread offense -- receiver Theo Riddick was called for a pick when he went across the middle, nullifying a 33-yard touchdown pass from Dayne Crist to Michael Floyd that would have given Notre Dame a 30-17 lead with less than six minutes to play.

''I just disagree fundamentally with the call,'' Kelly said. ''I've watched it a number of times. I'll have a conversation with our supervisor of referees. I've been running that play fo a long time and never had it called, because we run it the right way. That's a conversation we'll have to have and straighten out.''

The other call was an incomplete pass on Pittsburgh quarterback Tino Sunseri, who spiked the ball in the end zone without a penalty.
