Rocket Sanders bumps into official in scary sideline collision
The second-closest way to be involved in the direct line of fire during a college football game outside of quite literally being a player on either team is to be an official. And it’s not uncommon the referees take some hits that are arguably just as bad as the ones some of those suited up for action suffer.
That’s exactly what happened to one referee in Saturday’s matchup between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Alabama Crimson Tide. Here’s a look at the scary collision between Razorbacks running back Raheim “Rocket” Sanders just ahead of halftime, though the official seemed top be okay after the incident.

At the half, Alabama holds a firm 28-7 lead over Arkansas. It will be interesting to see how things continue to play out through the final two quarters — and we’re sure everyone will be keeping their head on a swivel.
