Colorado safety Afolabi Laguda ejected for targeting hit

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Colorado safety Afolabi Laguda has been ejected for targeting in the first quarter against Washington State.

Laguda was attempting to break up a 14-yard touchdown pass to Cougars receiver Robert Lewis on Saturday when he hit Lewis in the head. The call was confirmed after a review.

Laguda entered the game as the second-leading tackler on the Buffaloes.

This is the second time in three games the Buffaloes have lost a player to a targeting call. Outside linebacker Jimmie Gilbert was disqualified in the first quarter against UCLA on Nov. 3.
