10 Players Suspended After UCLA Arizona Brawl
The Pac-12 has taken action against the UCLA Bruins and Arizona Wildcats after their big fight on Thursday night. The news came in that a total of 10 players have been suspended for anywhere from a half game to 2 full games.
Last night the Pac-12 announced that six UCLA players and four Arizona players would be serving suspensions for their involvement in Thursday nights brawl. The suspensions were given out after officials had reviewed the tape of the incident.
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.
-Pac 12 commissioner Larry Scott
The suspensions will be in effect at each of the teams next scheduled game, which they both have on October 29th. UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel said that he respected the Pac-12′s decision to hand down the suspensions, and that the UCLA program does not condone this sort of thing.
