Washington State fan levels UW player after Apple Cup..

&feature=player_embedded

The Cougars beat the visiting Washington Huskies by a field goal in overtime in front of 30,000 fans Friday night. As you can see at around the :13 mark on the 45 yard line in the video above, the overtime win was apparently not enough for one fan who was out for blood.

According to CougCenter, the man in white (you can sort of see he is also holding his helmet) is Washington tight end, Austin Seferian-Jenkins as he walks off the field following the overtime loss. A fan rushing the field comes out of nowhere and sucker punches Seferian-Jenkins, leveling him to the ground, and is gone as quickly as he appeared.

Seferian-Jenkins had initially tweeted that he "prayed for that man that struck me. He must have some issues..." but appears to have since deleted the tweet (though he has acknowledged the punch in other tweets). According to The Seattle Times, Washington will not have any comment on the incident.

This is a big rivalry game up here and all that. Plus, folks in Eastern Washington tend to consume a lot of alcohol at Cougars games due to the cold...but there's no excuse for something like this.

2. Bad all the way around..

blowing the 28-10 lead means the Huskies are going be stuck in something like the Kraft Hunger Bowl..I had higher hopes..

I do wonder about Seferian-Jenkins. He's listed at 6' 6" 266 lbs..and he got knocked over by a fan?

3. After a game and somebody comes running up and blindsides you?

Not that hard to believe he was knocked down by a sucker punch.

4. Agreed.. it's hard to tell from the video if it was a punch or a steamrolling, but..

No matter how big you are, if you're not expecting it and get blindsided, you're most likely going down, at least for a second.

5. I can believe it..

Seferian-Jenkins is one of top tight ends in the country. He should be playing on Sunday eventually. The more I look at it, the more it looks like a push...but you're right , he definitely couldn't have been expecting it..
