AUBURN, Ala. — Sophomore linebacker Deshaun Davis was ejected for targeting during the first quarter of Auburn’s game against Vanderbilt on Saturday.
The play happened on a Vanderbilt second down. Commodore quarterback Kyle Shurmur attempted a pass to Kalija Lipscomb, which was incomplete.
Davis, already heading in that direction, hit the 6-foot-1, 190 pound Lipscomb after the ball after he missed the catch.

The play was reviewed and the call on the field was confirmed. Davis will miss the rest of this game, but won’t be out for any time in Auburn’s next matchup at Georgia next weekend.
Davis left the field cheering and pumping up the student section as he went into the locker room.
