Video: Ben Boulware Appeared To Twist Lamar Jackson By His Neck In Pile

Lamar Jackson is not happy after having his neck twisted by Clemson star linebacker Ben Boulware.

After a play during the second quarter of tonight's huge Clemson-Louisville ACC battle, Louisville quarterback and Heisman favorite Lamar Jackson was heard complaining to the referees about being grabbed by his neck.

Video pretty clearly shows the play in question. In a pile, Boulware puts Jackson in a headlock and twists him around after the play is ruled dead.

Jackson definitely has a point there.

This play aside, it hasn't been a good night for the Heisman front runner. He is just 10-of-21 for 111 yards and a pick through the air, and has been held to 27 yards on 14 rushes. Jackson and the Cardinals trail Clemson 28-10 at halftime. The raucous Death Valley crowd has not been kind to the nation's No. 3 team.
