Louisville cheerleader’s nose broken by a pass from Notre Dame’s Book


A University of Louisville cheerleader got uncomfortably close to the action during Monday’s loss to Notre Dame when a pass from Fighting Irish quarterback Ian Book sailed out of bounds and directly into her face, breaking her nose The cheerleader was perched along the sideline behind the Notre Dame bench in the fourth quarter at Cardinal Stadium as Book dropped back on first down near midfield As Louisville’s pass rush began to encircle him, Book wisely threw the ball out of bounds to avoid a sack That’s when the rifled pass fell out of the sky and right into the face of the cheerleader, who has since identified herself on Twitter as Elizabeth Scott   ‘Thank u Ian Book,’ the Louisville LadyBirds cheerleader tweeted afterwards.  Scott had been looking elsewhere and only seemed to notice the ball in the instant before it collided with her head Other cheerleaders nearby were also surprised to see the football fly into their proximity, but they were not in the line of fire Book appeared to look over in her direction, but it’s unclear if he was reacting to her or reading hand signals from coaches on the sidelines   A Louisville Athletic Department spokesperson did not immediately respond to the Daily Mail’s request for an update on her condition On Saturday, the Jackson State Tigers’ mascot, Wavee Dave (pictured) was penalized after getting involved in a scrum in the end zone with Bethune-Cookman playersHowever, she did respond to a query from Fox Sports’ Aaron Torres on Twitter  ‘Well my nose is crooked but I’ll always have a good story to tell,’ she replied  In the win, Book completed 14 of 23 passes for 193 yards and a touchdown, while adding another score and 81 yards on the ground    Spirit teams were a big part of college football’s opening weekend.In a game on Saturday, the Jackson State Tigers’ mascot was penalized after getting involved in a scrum in the end zone with Bethune-Cookman players After Jackson State scored a touchdown on a long pass from quarterback Jalon Jones, Bethune-Cookman players piled on receiver Warren Newman in an attempt to dislodge the ball and negate the reception That’s when the Tigers’ mascot, known as Wavee Dave, dove into the scrum and became entangled with Bethune-Cookman players Wavee Dave cost Jackson State a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and the Tigers ultimately lost to Wildcats
