LeGarrette Blount sucker punch turns game ugly

September 4, 2009

The 2009 college football season is off and running with a full slate of games scheduled for this weekend, but Boise State played their first ever ranked opponent at home on the blue turf last night when they battled #16 Oregon.  Boise won the game after a late Oregon charge and what should have been a great celebration turned ugly when Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount decided to take some revenge with a sucker punch to Boise St defensive lineman Byron Hout.

After the Boise st. 19-8 victory, which will be their big hope for a BCS bowl bid later this season, Hout appeared to tap Blount on the shoulder and yelled something to him. As the Boise coach, Chris Petersen, was trying to pull him away from Blount the punch was thrown.  A left hand cross struck the already turned away Hout and sent him to the turf.  Blount hopped back flexing for the fans and had to be restrained from taunting fans by police as he left the field.  I guess 17 rushing TD gets you some latitude.
