SportsLine.com wire reports
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- UNLV cornerback Ruschard Dodd-Masters was suspended for one game by the Mountain West Conference for throwing a punch at a Wyoming player.
MWC commissioner Craig Thompson called the hit a "potentially dangerous nonfootball act that clearly fell under the definition of 'physical abuse.'"
Wyoming wide receiver Josh Barge was hit in the throat. He missed several plays but returned to the game.
Dodd-Masters will miss Saturday's game when UNLV (2-7, 1-4) plays at Colorado State (3-6, 2-3).
The hit came near the end of a play in the third quarter of Wyoming's 53-45 triple-overtime road victory last Saturday. UNLV was assessed a 15-yard penalty.
