Austin Seferian-Jenkins not worried about Apple Cup punching incident

Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has moved past being punched in the face after the Apple Cup.

Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has moved on from a pretty terrible incident that followed the conclusion of the 2012 Apple Cup. After Washington State upset the rival Huskies, Cougar fans stormed the field in Pullman and not all of them celebrated appropriately. Apparently a man came up to the gigantic Washington tight end and punched him multiple times with enough force to send Seferian-Jenkins to the ground.

Seferian-Jenkins is not interested in pursuing the matter any further, though. Bill Swartz of MyNorthwest.com files this report.

"I told them not to pursue anything. He was probably intoxicated or something like that," Seferian-Jenkins said at Monday's practice. "I'm not really worried about it. I'm over it."

Despite the incident, the Washington tight end also seems supportive of having college football fans continue to rush the field after a big victory.

"Some people want to stop fans from rushing the field. I think you should still let fans rush the field -- that's part of college football and what makes it special," he said.

Seferian-Jenkins is coming off an impressive sophomore campaign, where he caught 63 passes for 791 yards and six touchdowns. Through his first two seasons at Washington, Seferian-Jenkins has managed to haul in 104 receptions for over 1300 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. His 104 receptions are an all-time school record for a Huskies tight end. Seferian-Jenkins and Washington now must prepare for a Las Vegas Bowl meeting with Boise State three days before Christmas.
