Jalen Dalton ejected during NC State-UNC brawl (Video)


North Carolina defensive lineman Jalen Dalton was ejected in the first half of his team’s rivalry game against NC State on Friday after he threw a punch during a bench-clearing brawl.

The fight broke out after the Tar Heels recovered a fumble on what was eventually ruled an incomplete pass upon further review. Players from the sidelines sprinted onto the field to get involved, and coaches tried to diffuse the situation. UNC coach Larry Fedora was physically dragged at one point while trying to keep Dalton from going after an NC State player.

If Fedora is, in fact, being considered for high-profile jobs like this one, he just received a boost on his physical strength rating. The fact that he stayed on his feet while being dragged by someone as massive as Dalton was impressive.

NC State took a 21-7 lead into halftime while looking to pull the upset.
