Ohio State TE Gee Scott Jr. gets costly penalty for headbutting opponent

Gee Scott Jr headbutts an opponent

Ohio State tight end Gee Scott Jr. was called for a brutal penalty during Saturday’s game against rival Michigan after headbutting an opponent.

Scott caught a pass that was going to give the Buckeyes 15 yards and the ball in field goal range. But the junior tight end delivered a vicious headbutt after the play.

That headbutt plus a holding call pushed Ohio State back to a 1st-and-35 situation. The Buckeyes were able to gain back most of the yards, but they lined up to punt in a 4th-and-5 situation from the Wolverines’ 43. They ended up punting after a false start pushed them back to a 4th-and-10 near midfield.

Ohio State was in a good position to put up some points if not for the penalties. Buckeyes coach Ryan Day was not pleased.

The Buckeyes were trailing 24-20 at that point, so they could have used the points.
