ESPN college football reporter Laura Rutledge had a scary moment on the sideline during her game this afternoon.

Rutledge got knocked over by a couple of players during the Georgia-UMass game in Athens, Ga. this afternoon.

The ESPN reporter recently took to Twitter to let everyone know that she was OK.

"Took an L in Athens today. So many thanks to everyone at (Georgia) for their help after this happened...even though I’m a Gator," she joked.

That did look pretty bad when it happened. Thankfully, Rutledge is an athlete and handled everything with class.

Georgia ended up winning today's game, 66-27, to improve to 10-1 on the season.
