Vallone was wearing a knee brace on his right knee during the second quarter when Reiter made the hit away from the action.

Both teams have been sloppy in the game, which is South Florida's first Big East contest of the season. Rutgers has committed seven penalties in the first half, but this penalty on South Florida, one of its two on the night thus far, was most notable for it's blatant nature.

With new Big East commissioner Mike Aresco in the house, a more severe penalty could be headed South Florida and Reiter's way. Neither player was injured on the play, and the game, despite its sloppiness, has not been dirty overall.
