UCLA fullback Nate Iese is listed at 6-foot-3, 250 pounds. UNLV cornerback Torry McTyer is 6-foot, 180.
So when the two collided during the second quarter at Sam Boyd Stadium, one of them plowed on through while the other went flying.
Did Iese feel the contact? “Um, no.”
Iese took off out of the flats twice before the end of the frame, going against McTyer for 9- and 15-yard gains. He ended the 37-3 win with 30 yards on three catches, and now has 73 receiving yards on the season. Perennially underused early in his career, the redshirt junior only had 70 yards on 12 catches all of last season — although two went for touchdowns.
