Eastern Michigan senior quarterback Mike Glass III finished his collegiate career with 311 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Eagles' 34-30 loss to Pittsburgh in the Quick Lane Bowl on Thursday night.
That was overshadowed when Glass threw punches and got ejected with 10 seconds remaining in the game:
"I let God and my family down!" Glass tweeted after the game. He issued a lengthier apology Friday night:
EMU head coach Chris Creighton called Glass a "phenomenal kid" but did not excuse his actions:
