Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistAugust 29, 2014

Things didn't go so well for Eastern Illinois through the first three quarters of its season opener against Minnesota, but the opening play of the fourth quarter had to be the worst moment of the night for the Panthers.

The Golden Gophers were leading 21-0 entering the fourth quarter and driving for another score. After Minnesota picked up a first down and moved closer to the goal line on the first play of the quarter, Panthers linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill decided to give Golden Gophers offensive lineman Zac Epping a shot below the belt.

Not only did the cameras pick it up, but the referees did as well. Grugier-Hill was flagged for a personal foul and ejected from the game.

Minnesota won the game, 42-20.
