NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says he's not satisfied with an apology offered by the Pacific-10 Conference over sloppy officiating in the Sooners' game with Oregon.

The Pac-10 made the apology and issued a one-game suspension Monday to the officiating crew and the instant replay officials who worked the game. The Ducks won the game 34-to-33 after scoring two touchdowns in the final 72 seconds.

Stoops says the officials had an opportunity to get it right and they chose not to. Stoops says there's no amends for what happened and it can't be corrected.

The loss was Oklahoma's first of the season and immediately lessens the Sooners' chances of making it to a third BCS title game in four years.
