ESPN apologized for showing a woman flashing her breasts during Monday's broadcast of the College Football Playoff semifinal between Washington and Texas in the Sugar Bowl.

In the third quarter of the game, ESPN used a shot of a camera crossing Bourbon Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, a typical transition made in bowl games to show the host city before play resumed. In the photo, a woman can be seen looking up and uncovering the top of her shirt, showing off her chest. The woman then covered her chest before the clip ended.

ESPN acknowledges the incident and apologizes for broadcasting it to a national audience.

“We regret that this happened and apologize that the video was shown during the telecast,” ESPN's Bill Hofheimer said in a statement to USA TODAY Sports.

City and away shots are usually taken before the match, and footage of the incident quickly became popular on social media after it was broadcast.

Washington was going to defeat Texas, 37-31to establish a correspondence with Michigan in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on January 8.
