Targeting penalties have drawn the ire of football fans, and it appeared there was going to be another controversial ejection in the Oklahoma-Baylor game.
Bears defensive back K.J. Morton laid a big hit on Sooners receiver Sterling Shepard. Morton was flagged for targeting and was initially ejected. However, the referees decided it was a clean hit, and Morton remained in the game.
It was in the middle of a tough drive for No. 6 Baylor:
Targeting ejection overturned, penalty yardage (and Dixon’s 2 personal fouls) set up OU at the 7 yard line— Eye on College FBall (@EyeOnCFB) November 8, 2013
Three personal fouls allowed No. 10 Oklahoma to drive down the field, but Baylor came up with a big stand at the goal line. Unfortunately, the offense allowed a safety after taking over at their own 2-yard line.
There continue to be controversial targeting penalties and ejections, and there will likely be some more this season.
