LSU offensive lineman ejected for shameless cheap shot on Wisconsin player
LSU entered the season with national championship aspirations.
Those aspirations likely died Saturday with a terribly ill-advised Brandon Harris throw with a minute left in the fourth quarter against Wisconsin.
You can understand the frustration that would stem from Harris' throw, which went directly to a Wisconsin cornerback, but this was over the line.
LSU offensive lineman Josh Boutte took out his frustration on the interceptor, D'Cota Dixon, well after the play was whistled dead, with a wicked clothesline.
Boutte was ejected for the cheap-shot -- the referee ruled it a "flagrant personal foul" -- and will likely face suspension from LSU and/or the SEC.
LSU entered the game as the No. 5 team in the nation. Paired with the 16-14 loss and Oklahoma's loss earlier in the day, Saturday marked the first time in college football history that two Top-5 teams lost on the opening weekend.
