Baylor defensive end Greg Roberts didn't allow the presence of an official to keep him from taking a swing at Iowa State running back David Montgomery on Saturday, reaching around the referee to land a jumping right hook to Montgomery's helmet.

Roberts swing came after a scuffle in the third quarter at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa, with the Cyclones leading 17–0. Montgomery charged Roberts after being struck in the helmet, and both players were ejected from the game. The junior running back's game ended with 11 carries for 53 yards.
