Notre Dame fans are very upset after a Texas defender was not called for targeting on a hit on Torii Hunter Jr.
Notre Dame wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr., who is the son of former Major League Baseball star Torii Hunter, was injured Sunday night during the third quarter trying to make a play for his team against Texas. Hunter, who went for four catches, 37 yards and a touchdown on the night, almost had a second score.
Quarterback Deshone Kizer found Hunter in the end zone, but as Hunter caught the ball and went to the ground, he was clocked by Longhorns safety DeShon Elliott. Hunter was unable to hang onto the ball.
As you can see, there was no penalty called on the play. The booth also didn’t call it in for targeting. Notre Dame fans went bananas.
Hunter’s parents left the stands to be by his side in the locker room. It’s safe to say that the school is going to put him through concussion protocol at the very least.
What do you think? Did Elliott get away with it? Or is everyone overreacting?
