VIDEO: Streaker helps incite Arizona-UCLA brawl

Not much about Arizona's 48-12 demolition of UCLA Thursday night made for must-see viewing, save for one incident with two seconds remaining in the first half ... but that one incident made up for a lot.

If you missed it (and given the 42-7 scoreline at the time, we don't blame you if you did): a fan dressed as a referee successfully stopped play by running onto the field blowing a whistle and waving his hands. He then made a halfhearted attempt to grab the game ball before dashing off towards one end zone and stripping down to his "tighty-whities" (to use the technical term). While security attempted to restore order, the two teams decided they didn't actually want order, starting a benches-clearing brawl that eventually saw two players ejected.

Watch here:



If you're wondering exactly what happened to the streaker, you can view a fan video of his on-the-run clothes-removal and eventual takedown here (be advised: R-rated language warning.)

If there's any positive spin to the incident from a UCLA perspective, it's that the incident might have woken up some of the Bruin recruits who their staff apparently e-mailed and told to watch the game. Then again ...



... maybe they'd have preferred said recruits just kept right on ignoring the game anyway.

The best part of this video was the midget cameraman. Keep your eye to the right of the screen.

obviously I am a cat fan, but what in the h$%# is number 91 walking around holding up the #1 finger for? Are you kidding me dude, your team won their 2nd game of the season...hardly number 1.

other than that, great game...I've heard the UofA is going to make an example of this streaking clown. Hate to be that guy right about now.

Are you kidding?

The brawl was the best part of this game. And it was one of the best parts of any game this season, for that matter.....
