Vanderbilt wide receiver Jordan Matthews literally played his guts out on Thursday night.
The senior receiver caught 10 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown in Vandy’s 39-35 loss to Ole Miss. The kid played with so much heart that he stayed in the game even after taking a nasty hit that made him throw up late in the fourth quarter.
Matthews caught a 12-yard pass going across the middle for a first down. He was drilled in the midsection by a perfect form tackle, and his head snapped back and hit the field. Matthews got up but was obviously woozy, so he called the trainers over to look at him. That’s when he puked his brains out and left the game. But Matthews returned and managed to catch a 42-yard pass on 4th and 18 to extend the team’s drive a few plays later. Vandy threw a touchdown on the play after his big catch to go up 35-32, but Ole Miss’s Jeff Scott ran for a 75-yard score to give the Rebels the lead back. Ole Miss won 39-35.
Not to embarrass Matthews or anything, but dude had a straight river of puke spilling out of his mouth:
