Tempers were flaring early in this afternoon's Texas Tech-West Virginia game at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, Texas.

A Texas Tech defensive lineman, Eli Howard, appeared to throw a pretty big punch toward a Mountaineers' player.

The punch was dodged, thankfully, and no ejections were made.

Video of the punch and ensuing Muhammad Ali-esque dodge are going viral.

West Virginia went on to win the game, 42-34, to stay undefeated.
