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.
