Ohio State loses 2 players, Michigan 1 to ejection

Ohio State and Michigan kicked its rivalry up a notch with

punching, shoving and tugging.

The third-ranked Buckeyes lost starting right guard Marcus Hall

and kick returner Dontre Wilson and the Wolverines lost backup

linebacker Royce Jenkins-Stone to ejections Saturday. All three

players were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and had to leave

the field after a skirmish.

Hall and Wilson appeared to throw punches after players gathered

following an Ohio State kickoff return early in the second quarter.

Jenkins-Stone tugged Wilson’s helmet off and tossed it to the turf.

While walking off the field and toward the tunnel, Hall put both

arms into the air and extended his middle fingers.

Punishment could potentially linger for Ohio State if both

players are suspended for next week’s Big Ten championship


”The conference office will wait until after the game for the

officials’ written report, review the video and then take further

action if needed,” Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman wrote in an

email to The Associated Press.
