San Diego State’s Jalen Mayden nails official in face with football

San Diego State quarterback Jalen Mayden had one pass he probably would like to have back on Saturday against Ohio.

Mayden was feeling the rush from the Bobcats in the first quarter and instead of taking the sack, he made the decision to try and throw the ball away. Instead, he nailed the center judge in the face with the football. The official appeared to be OK.
