LSU safety Grant Delpit, a first-team All-American, and cornerback Terrence Alexander were ejected in the first half Tuesday at the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl.
Delpit was called for targeting on a hit against UCF receiver Dredrick Snelson Jr. in the second quarter; and Alexander was ejected for throwing a punch after the Tigers recovered a fumble by UCF quarterback Darriel Mack Jr.. Alexander punched wide receiver Gabriel Davis in the face mask.
No. 11 LSU defeated No. 8 UCF with a score of 40-32 to end the Knights’ 25-game winning streak.
LSU’s Kelvin Joseph was suspended from playing in the Fiesta Bowl for a violation of team rules. Alexander, a senior, started opposite sophomore Kary Vincent Jr. at cornerback against the previously undefeated Knights.
