Now for the damage report. Four helmets belonging to Cougar players are missing, and coach Kevin Sumlin has asked for them to be returned.
"Saturday night was fun, but it will be hard for 3 of our guys to play this week without their helmets. Please return, NO QUESTIONS ASKED," Sumlin posted Monday on his Twitter page.
On Tuesday, linebacker Marcus McGraw, who had 19 tackles in the win, announced that he was fourth player without a helmet.
"I kind of tossed it up in the air," he said.
"I tried to look for it in the pile," McGraw said. "I said, 'You know what, somebody might return it.' I told the equipment manager, 'I don't know what happened, but my helmet is out there somewhere.'
Receivers A.J. Dugat and James Cleveland and guard Jordan Shoemaker lost their helmets in the sea of red. Receiver Tyron Carrier nearly had his helmet taken but managed to recover it. Carrier watched as a fan snatched Dugat's helmet.
"Dugat was trying to chase the guy," Carrier said. "It was funny. It was so funny."
Carrier added: "[The thief] was weaving through the crowd. We have to recruit that guy. He's pretty fast."
