Eastern Michigan QB Ejected For Striking Referee During Game

Things got a little bit out of hand in the Quick Lane Bowl matchup between Eastern Michigan University and Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

While, Pittsburgh up 34-30, Eastern Michigan quarterback Mike Glass III was knocked to the ground after a pass attempt with only 10 seconds to go in the game. After standing to his feet, he immediately threw a punch at a nearby player.

Glass III received two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and was ejected from his final collegiate game. In the loss, Glass finished 28-of-50 for 311 yards with two touchdowns and an interception and also ran for 83 yards and a score.

Eastern Michigan’s backup QB Preston Hutchinson entered the game for a single play, a desperation 4th and 10, but his pass fell incomplete and Pittsburgh held on for the 34-30 win. The Panthers improved to 8-5 on the season with the victory, while the Eagles fell to 6-7 on the year.
