Indiana State’s Carlos Aviles was ejected from Thursday’s season-opening game against Indiana for violating college football’s new targeting rule.
Aviles was attempting to cover a punt in the third quarter during the Sycamores’ game against Indiana, but he leveled Shane Wynn before the returner received the punt. The freshman defensive back was called for a flagrant foul and “disqualified” according to the refs. He also will not be able to play in the first half next game because his infraction occurred in the second half.
Below is a video of the play:
