On Friday night, Washington State put its undefeated record on the line against the Houston Cougars. It was an all-Cougar affair, one that Mike Leach and company took advantage of.
Washington State took home a 31-24 win, moving to 3-0 on the season.
Despite the action on the field, it was an incident off the field that had everyone talking. As a Houston player slid out of bounds, ESPN sideline reporter Paul Carcaterra attempted to get out of the way.
In doing so, he ran right into the base of a cheerleader formation. The move caused one cheerleader to fall from the top.
After the game was over, the cheerleader made sure to let everyone know it was her who fell – and she seems to be doing just fine.
She even had fun with it, telling everyone she made ESPN.
Check me out I made ESPN (I'm the one falling) https://t.co/TpIjT7IE96

The immediate reaction from those watching the video was to call out Carcaterra for not immediately making sure she was okay. However, she made sure to let everyone know, the ESPN reporter came to check on her after she met with the medical staff.
“He came to check on me after I got checked out by staff,” she said on Twitter.
We’re glad she’s doing okay after the scary fall.
