DENVER (AP) — Fresno State defensive back Terrance Dennis was suspended for one game by the Western Athletic Conference for committing a flagrant personal foul last week against Nebraska.

WAC Commissioner Karl Benson announced the punishment Tuesday. Dennis will miss this week's game for the Bulldogs against North Dakota.

Benson says protecting defenseless players from hits to the head is a priority. He says Dennis should have been ejected for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Nebraska tight end Kyler Reed with 4 seconds remaining in the first half of the Cornhuskers' 42-29 victory last Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.
