Matt Scott injury: Arizona Wildcats QB avoids concussion, will play against UCLA

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

The senior quarterback says he felt winded and got sick in Arizona's upset of USC.

Everyone on the field for the Arizona Wildcats was working hard in their 39-36 upset over the No. 9 USC Trojans Saturday. The Wildcats were rewarded for their efforts on Sunday when the BCS installed them at No. 22 heading into this weeks visit to Pasadena to play the UCLA Bruins. No one may have worked harder than Matt Scott who finished the day with 369 yards of passing and 100 rushing yards.

But Scott may not have escaped the game unscathed. He took a helmet-to-helmet hit in the fourth quarter and vomited on the field shortly thereafter. He finished that drive with a touchdown pass to David Richards but would not return to the game. The team was understandably concerned about a possible concussion but Scott said not to worry.

In fact, Scott says it wasn't the helmet-to-helmet hit that caused him to lose his lunch but rather the weather and offensive load he was carrying.

With or without Scott, the Wildcats will face off against the Bruins this Saturday at 10:30 p.m. ET.
