Advertiser StaffDENVER University of Hawai'i football receiver Davone Bess has been reprimanded by the Western Athletic Conference for his actions following the game between Hawai'i and the University of Nevada, played in Reno on Nov. 16.
At the conclusion of the game won by UH 28-26 Bess ran onto the field and into the end zone, where he taunted Nevada fans that were seated in the stands.
Said WAC commissioner Karl Benson, "His actions clearly violate the WAC sportsmanship code and won't be tolerated. Any further actions of this type may result in a one-game suspension."
Said Bess, "I apologize to the Nevada fans for my behavior at the end of the game that night. It was an emotional win and my actions were inappropriate. I can assure you that it will not happen again."
