Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott said he wasn’t sure what had happened. But it sure was good.
He had taken a helmet-to-helmet hit after completing a short pass in the first quarter and then he was on the ground, entangled with 299-pound Oklahoma State defensive lineman Calvin Barnett.
Scott’s left leg was draped on the back of Barnett, who was on his knees. As the players wrestled a bit, Barnett stood up, taking Scott with him and then tossing him to the ground.
Thank you, very much. That’s another 15-yard personal foul penalty.
“It was like a WWF move or something,” Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said after his team’s 59-38 upset of the Cowboys. “I don’t know what the heck was going on there. I’m glad Matt kept his composure because he’s a competitor.”
