BOISE -- Bronco cheerleader Danielle Barness took one of the hardest hits in the Boise State / Michigan State game nearly two weeks ago.

The sophomore from Washington State took a bone-jarring hit by 5-foot-9-inch, 193-pound, senior wide receiver, Mitch Burroughs.

Burroughs crashed out of bounds, slammed into Barness at full speed, and sent her pom-poms flying.

However, Barness says she inexplicably didn't receive major injuries from the incident -- not even a bruise!

She told KTVB's Mark Johnson, "I felt like I got hit by a bus when I woke up the next day."
