EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -Oregon has suspended running back LeGarrette Blount for the remainder of season for punching Boise State defensive end Byron Hout after Thursday's loss.
Blount's suspension includes any bowl games. Coach Chip Kelly says he will remain on scholarship.
As Boise State began celebrating on their famous blue turf, Hout yelled in Blount's face and tapped him on the shoulder pad. Before Broncos head coach Chris Petersen could pull Hout away, Blount landed a right to Hout's jaw, knocking him to his knees.
Blount also had to be restrained by police officers from fans heckling him on the way to the locker room after No. 16 Oregon's 19-8 loss to the No. 14 Broncos. No criminal charges were filed.
