At the Insight Bowl in Tempe, Ariz. Friday night, an overhead ESPN camera crashed down onto the field, narrowly missing Iowa receiver Martin McNutt Jr., who became entangled in the guide wire but wasn’t hurt.
“First, I looked: What is it that fell from the sky?” McNutt said after Iowa’s 31-14 loss to No. 19 Oklahoma, according to the AP. “The next thing I know, the camera kind of scratched me a little bit. It was just pulling me and I knew I didn’t want to keep going with it.”
The incident occurred in the fourth quarter of the game, with Iowa trying to rally from a 10-point deficit.
“I fell like somebody was trying to kill me on their (Oklahoma’s) staff,” McNutt joked. “If you are looking, I’m looking for you. No. It was lucky it didn’t hit me.”
