Seferian-Jenkins apparently struck by fan

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Since this is, unfortunately, turning into one of the bigger talking points from the Apple Cup at this point, this post is to note that CougCenter has posted video of a fan apparently striking a Washington Huskies player identified as Austin Seferian-Jenkins as fans stormed the field following Friday's game.

As you can see in the video here, it's not possible to make out a number or facial features or anything like that, but Seferian-Jenkins confirmed in a tweet Saturday night that he was, indeed, struck by a fan after the game.

Here's a detailed breakdown of the grainy video by CougCenter. The video appears to show a fan run up to the UW player, strike him near the head area, then run away into the crowd.

A WSU spokesperson said it wasn't immediately known whether athletic director Bill Moos or WSU administrators were aware of the incident. The video began circulating during the WSU men's basketball game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. UW has told reporters that it isn't commenting on the matter.

As Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times notes in this blog post, Seferian-Jenkins spoke with reporters after the game and appeared fine. He did not mention the altercation.
