Clemson OL Ejected for Brutal Uppercut


Move over, LeGarrette Blount, and make room for Clemson OL Isaiah Battle in college football infamy.

Toward the end of the Tigers’ 26–14 victory over NC State on Thursday night, Battle threw a vicious uppercut punch that sent Wolfpack safety Jarvis Byrd to the turf. Unsurprisingly, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney pulled Battle from the game, and he was ejected soon afterward.

Why do we get the sense that Battle did his share of boxing growing up in Brooklyn? That uppercut and movement backwards is something you’d see from Floyd Mayweather.
