Following a late hit on Sean Clifford, Steele Chambers was ejected for targeting in the third quarter Saturday.
The third-year Buckeye linebacker hit the Penn State quarterback as he began to slide on a quarterback run on the first series of the second half. The hit was initially called a personal foul, but was subsequently ruled a targeting penalty following a review.
Chambers, who started the second half at linebacker for Ohio State, was ejected from the game and will also miss the first half of the Buckeyes' matchup with Nebraska next Saturday. Chambers was credited with three tackles and a quarterback hurry prior to the ejection.
Former Ohio State cornerback Jeff Okudah chimed in on the call in disagreement shortly thereafter.
They love calling targeting on us at the WRONG times!— Jeff Okudah (@jeffokudah) October 31, 2021
The Buckeyes held a 17-10 lead over Penn State at the time of the play, but the Nittany Lions punched in a touchdown to tie things up after the extra point on the same drive.
