OUCH: Referee leaves game after getting (unintentionally) leveled by player

As Miss Arizona learned during Friday's Territorial Cup game in Tucson: You have to be ready to get hit any time you're on the football field, even if you're not a player.

On Saturday, head referee Ron Cherry was reminded of this as he was leveled by USC linebacker Michael Hutchings in the third quarter of the Trojans' game against visiting Notre Dame.

Fortunately, Cherry was able to get back on his feet, though he did leave the game and was taken to a nearby hospital to be evaluated.
