TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - A review has determined a camera that fell from an overhead wire during the Insight Bowl was an isolated incident.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said Sunday that the cause of the crashing camera during Friday night's game has been addressed and extra precautions will be taken for the six remaining bowl games.

He said the Fiesta Bowl will not have an aerial camera Monday night because of a compressed schedule due to an NFL game at University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday.

The overhead camera, operated by Oklahoma-based SkyCam, fell with 2:22 left in the Insight Bowl between Oklahoma and Iowa. The camera didn't hit anyone, but Iowa receiver Marvin McNutt Jr. became tangled in the guide wire and sustained a minor cut on his arm.
