As the clock ticked to zero in Boise State’s win over the Oregon Ducks on the opening night of the college football season, tempers began to flare. Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount wasn’t happy when Boise State defensive lineman Byron Hout tapped him on the shoulder pad and gave him an earful following the game. Blount socked him in the chin, dropping the Bronco to the turf.
