Pac-12 College Student Arrested For Extreme Threat That Hinged On Team's Performance

Rice-Eccles Stadium, home of the Utah Utes.

The Utes of Utah football team has reached unprecedented success these past few years. That's resulted in one dedicated fan base. Unfortunately, one fan is taking her fandom to the extreme. 

A University of Utah student reportedly threatened to "detonate" a nuclear reactor on campus had the Utes lost to San Diego State last Saturday night. Fortunately, the Utes beat the Aztecs handedly in a 35-7 blowout. 

Authorities have reportedly arrested the University of Utah student for the extreme threat. She was booked into Salt Lake County Jail on Wednesday.

"A 21-year old Utah student was arrested after she threatened to detonate a nuclear reactor that is located on campus if the Utes lost to San Diego State Saturday, @KSLcom reports. She was booked into Salt Lake County Jail Wednesday. Fortunately, Utah won 35-7," said Brett McMurphy. 

Simply an outrageous threat from a Utah student, regardless of any truth behind it. It was uncalled for and gave authorities a considerable scare. 

The good news is Utah took care of business so the threat didn't have to be executed in any fashion. 

Utah begins Pac-12 play this Saturday against the Sun Devils of Arizona State. ASU fired Herm Edwards last Sunday following the team's upset loss to Eastern Michigan.
