On Thursday night there was a brawl right before the half of the UCLA Arizona game sparked by a streaker dressed up as a referee. Up until that point, the game was rather unwatchable. The Pac-12 has taken action on the brawl however, suspending a total of 10 players, six for UCLA and four for Arizona.
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott announced the suspensions today.
"The Conference is extremely disappointed in the actions of the student-athletes involved in this incident. It is unacceptable behavior and violated Conference rules, as well as NCAA fighting rules. I have taken these actions today because it is imperative that we hold our student-athletes and coaches to the highest standards of sportsmanship."
