Clemson OL ejected for uppercut KO

With the third-ranked Clemson Tigers leading N.C. State handily
with about 90 seconds left Thursday night, offensive lineman Isaiah
Battle decided to deliver the knockout punch — literally.

After a clock-eating first-down run for no gain, Battle got face
to face with safety Jarvis Byrd and slipped an uppercut that caught
Byrd right on the chin and sent him somersaulting backwards. Skip
to the 1:40 mark to watch it all unfold:

Pretty fast hands — Floyd Mayweather Jr. would be proud
— but did he think they were too fast for the human eye to
catch? The refs flagged him, and that was the end of the night for
the sophomore from Brooklyn, who got ejected with
the Tigers’ 26-14 victory well in hand and
likely will be suspended for next week’s game against … Wake
Forest.

Maybe he’s not so dumb after all.
