Jerry Tillery commits two dirty plays within minutes
Notre Dame’s Jerry Tillery committed a pair of dirty plays minutes apart during the fourth quarter of his team’s game against USC on Saturday.
The first dirty play happened after Aca’Cedric Ware was knocked down by Notre Dame’s Nicco Fertitta on a targeting foul. When Ware was on the ground, Tillery came by and kicked him in the head:

A few plays later, Tillery did his best Ndamukong Suh impression and stepped on USC’s Zach Banner while he was on the ground:
Tillery may have been frustrated over his team’s poor play, but his behavior was inexcusable. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after stepping on Banner, and he got chewed out by head coach Brian Kelly on the sidelines after the coach was informed about what happened.
