College football fans upset after controversial ejection of Kentucky’s Lynn Bowden | NCAA Football

Kentucky receiver Lynn Bowden was tossed from the Wildcats’ game against Eastern Kentucky for targeting.

Bowden was down the field blocking for his teammate, but officials determined he took it too far. The play was reviewed and officials kept the ruling, ejecting Bowden from the game. The reasoning was “contact to the head of defender.”

Afterwards, the receiver went on his private Twitter account and tweeted, “My guys got this. Watch [them] from the inside #BBN.”

Meanwhile, other college football fans saw the play and did some tweeting themselves. Many were upset with the call, claiming it was just a good block. 

Whether they like it or not, officials will make it a point to avoid any excessive contact to the head. While it’s often difficult for players to aim where they hit, don’t be surprised if they get flagged for illegal plays.
