A scary scene took place tonight in the game between the BYU Cougars and Boise State Broncos as Brigham Young’s Daniel Sorensen took a nasty knee to his helmet when attempting to make a tackle.

With BYU leading by ten points (10-0) in the second quarter, Boise St. was charging towards midfield when Sorensen attempted to come across the filed to make a tackle.

Apparently, Sorsensen felt that going low would cut off Boise’s running back who was nearing not only traffic, but the sideline. So Sorensen dove for the low tackle, but caught the knee of the Boise State runner which clubbed him flush in the helmet.

The BYU defensive back was down (obviously) for a considerable amount of time and it appeared some of his family members made their way down from the stands to the field.

Thankfully, after a few moments down, Sorsensen (clearly dazed) was helped off the field. He has been replaced in the lineup by Skye PoVey.

    Maybe next time he won’t aim for his target’s knee.
