Laura Rutledge had a rough day on Saturday… She even knew it herself….
“When your man spots a better sports option,” Rutledge, 30, later joked of the incident on Twitter.
“Took an L in Athens today. So many thanks to everyone at @UGAAthletics for their help after this happened…even though I’m a Gator ?,” she also tweeted.
She was doing her regular spots on ESPN before Saturday college football games, and ahead of the UMass v. Georgia game, things got rough for her. She was first dragged by the Bulldogs mascot, UGA X, while trying to hold onto his leash.
Later during her time on the sideline reporting, she was ran over… badly.
She couldn’t have seen it coming and she got knocked by two players.
In shocking fashion, she got right back up with no injuries (thankfully).
Remember, she is a Gator, so later the day went a little smoother for her college!
Fortunately for Rutledge, she received a bit of good luck Saturday with University of
Florida’s 63-10 victory over Idaho.
