Clemson Tackle Isaiah Battle Ejected From Game After Laying Uppercut on N.C. State Defensive Back (GIF)


Apparently, Isaiah Battle thought he was part of a Tae Bo video during Thursday night’s matchup against N.C. State.

Late in the fourth quarter following a running play, something set the Clemson tackle off, and he went straight into Billy Blanks mode — laying a stout uppercut on Wolfpack defensive back Jarvis Byrd. The punch knocked Byrd to his back and led to a tussle between the two teams.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney immediately pulled Battle from the game, and the sophomore was officially ejected from the game by officials shortly after that. There’s no word yet on any additional punishment.
