Big Sky suspends Northern Colorado cornerback

Ogden, UT (Sports Network) - The Big Sky Conference suspended Northern Colorado football player Brandon Owens for fighting during a game last Saturday, conference commissioner Doug Fullerton announced Wednesday.

Owens, a junior, will be suspended for the first half of Northern Colorado's game on Saturday against Idaho State.

Owens threw a punch at a Weber State player during the third overtime of the Bears' 50-47 loss to the Wildcats last Saturday. He was not penalized during the game, but a videotape review of the game revealed the punch.
