The Southeastern Conference has suspended Mississippi State center Dillon Day for the Bulldogs’ next game, against Texas A&M, after reviewing game film of him stomping LSU players.
LSU coach Les Miles said Monday that the school sent video to the conference of Day stomping on defensive tackle Davon Godchaux and cornerback Rashard Robinson during the Bulldogs’ 34-29 win. Here is the video courtesy of Saturday Down South and ESPN.
“This action is the result of multiple flagrant and unsportsmanlike acts during the game, as well as previous disciplinary action for similar behavior,” the league wrote in a statement.
Day, a Monroe native, was suspended by Mississippi State for the first half of a game last season for stomping on an Auburn player.
The Bulldogs are off this week and host Texas A&M on Oct. 4.
“I think not only did TV catch that, but that was something that we caught, that we sent in,” Miles said Monday. “And certainly the conference will do the right thing.”
Day, through his Twitter account, apologized in a letter addressed to Mississippi State fans. He said he was “wrongfully accused.”
