COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The Big Ten has publicly reprimanded Ohio State offensive lineman Marcus Hall and the Buckeyes’ coaching staff for their actions in the wake of a fight during Saturday’s game at Michigan.
Hall was ejected from the game for coming onto the field to participate in the skirmish. As he was leaving the sideline, he angrily threw his helmet to the ground, kicked the team benches and then held up both hands in an obscene gesture.
Coach Urban Meyer has said he will issue punishment within the team to Hall and kick returner Dontre Wilson, who was seen throwing a punch.
Hall later apologized on his Twitter account.
No. 2 Ohio State (12-0) takes on No. 10 Michigan State (11-1) in the Big Ten championship game on Saturday in Indianapolis.
