Texas DL Malcolm Roach ejected for targeting
Texas Longhorns lineman Malcolm Roach was ejected from Saturday’s rivalry game against Oklahoma for targeting during the third quarter.
The Sooners had the ball at their 25 and threw a quick pass to CeeDee Lamb, who went down. Roach came in and nailed the receiver just as he hit the turf.

Not sure why Lamb is sliding like a QB here, but it's not an advisable hit on Roach's part. pic.twitter.com/DLnaaHs1Fz
