Big Ten Apologizes for Ejecting Denzel Ward

By D.J. Byrnes on October 10, 2017 at 2:10 pm

Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward delivered the most punishing hit of the 2017 campaign on Maryland receiver Tavion Jacobs in the first quarter on Saturday.

Unfortunately for Ward, referees called him for targeting—a call they confirmed upon review. The penalty immediately ejected him.

Tuesday, Urban Meyer confirmed what Buckeye fans had long suspected: The call was egregious.

Meyer will credit Ward for the forced fumble, as well.
