Here we have the very best thing to emerge from the entire sad Thursday evening conflagration between the Arizona Wildcats and UCLA Bruins: a rumble just before halftime that was apparently brought on by a fan who ran onto the field. Arizona's Shaq Richardson and UCLA's Taylor Embree were tossed.
He was described by the booth as both a "knucklehead" and as someone who dressed up as a Pac-12 referee, but we repeat ourselves. The participant whistled a play dead, then disrobed while still gaining more yardage than UCLA's entire offense.
Video of the bout, from start to finish, is available right here:
This will be our last bulletin from Tucson until this sad chapter in sports history has subsided, unless something fantastic happens, like perhaps a naked UCLA player putting all his street clothes back on as he runs into the stands.
The Wildcats are shredding the Bruins, 42-7, after only 30 minutes. This game, the first for Arizona interim coach Tim Kish, could also very well be the last for UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel.
