    Tulane football player Devon Walker broke his neck and stopped breathing when he collided with fellow teammate Julius Warmsley while trying to tackle Tulsa back Willie Carter on the final play of the first half. The safety then rolled on his back and didn't move. Emergency medical services revived Walker on the field and a tracheotomy was performed to get him breathing again.

    He did not get a tracheotomy nor did his lung collapse as previously reported.
