LSU offensive lineman Andy Dodd and Missouri defensive lineman Charles Harris were in each other’s faces throughout the first half of LSU’s 42-7 win. Things finally boiled over after the two scrapped following a fourth-quarter run, resulting in a double ejection.
Both were to be suspended for the first half of their next respective games, Dodd’s Tigers at Florida next week and Harris’ Tigers the following Saturday. But LSU coach Ed Orgeron believes Dodd and fellow suspendee Xavier Lewis, who was ejected in the first half for targeting, have a case, as he said Monday that an appeal of their first-half suspensions is “in the works.”
#LSU is appealing the suspension/ejection of Andy Dodd. They're expecting to hear about that later today.

If we’re to take the word of center Ethan Pocic, the suspension has already been overturned.
#LSU C Ethan Pocic said he thinks C Andy Dodd's suspension has been overruled. Dodd was ejected and by rule would have to sit out 1st 1/2

No matter, it sounds like their statuses for Saturday’s game at Florida should be resolved by the end of Monday. The Tigers face No. 18 Florida at noon ET on ESPN.
