Elizabeth Scott told WAVE 3 News that she is doing fine but is in a little bit of pain.

It was a week ago during the UofL-Notre Dame game when Scott was hit in the face by a pass by Irish quarterback Ian Book that went out of bounds.

Scott says she hopes to be back dancing with the Ladybirds for the next UofL home game on Oct. 5 against Boston College.
