A report today in The Tennesseean says two Vanderbilt ball boys working on the Arkansas sideline Saturday night were “verbally abused and physically pushed” by a member of the Razorbacks’ support staff.
According to the report written by Jeff Lockridge, Vanderbilt equipment manager Luke Wyatt said the two students required protection from on-field Arkansas State Troopers following an altercation early in the game, a 49-14 Arkansas victory in Fayetteville. Commodores coach Robbie Caldwell declined to comment on the situation, according to the report.
There has been little love lost between the two schools since the conclusion of Saturday’s game. Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino said Monday defensive tackle Byran Jones was injured on a “dirty, bad play” by a Vanderbilt offensive lineman in the first quarter.
The two teams are scheduled to meet again next season in Nashville.
