VIDEO: Alshon Jeffery, Alfonzo Dennard Ejected For Fighting In Capital One Bowl

After an exciting first half of the Capital One Bowl, neither the South Carolina Gamecocks nor the Nebraska Cornhuskers scored in the third quarter, and South Carolina still holds a 16-13 lead. But the third quarter wasn't without excitement, as Gamecocks receiver Alshon Jeffery and 'Huskers cornerback Alfonzo Dennard were ejected for fighting. Here's the video:

On a third-and-six for South Carolina, Nebraska bottled up all of Connor Shaw's receiving options, resulting in a sack. On the play, Dennard and Jeffery got tangled up with one another. The NFL prospects began exchanging words, and then punches, resulting in offsetting personal-foul penalties and ejections for both players.

Jeffery gave the Gamecocks the lead at the end of the first half, hauling in a 51-yard hail Mary pass from Shaw on the finalplay from scrimmage. He finished with four catches for 148 yards and a touchdown.
