Two officials take big hits from Illinois players

Larry Brown Sports

It was a very rough day for the referees Saturday in the season opener between Illinois and Nebraska. Not necessarily because they got a lot of calls wrong, but because they were literally getting hit around pretty good.

In the first half, an Illinois player collided with the umpire while chasing after a crossing route. It actually took the defender out of the play, but Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez overthrew the wide open receiver.
