Flag on the play
STARKVILLE, MS - Mississippi State offensive lineman Dillon Day has been suspended one game by the Southeastern Conference for "multiple flagrant and unsportsmanlike acts" during Saturday's 34-29 win over LSU.
The league announced the suspension on Tuesday.
Day was shown on camera stepping on LSU's Davon Godchaux and Rashard Robinson on separate plays. He was not penalized on either play.
The SEC's announcement also said the league took into account previous disciplinary action for similar behavior. Day was suspended for the first half of a game last season after stepping on an Auburn player.
Day posted a statement on Twitter Monday addressing the LSU incidents, saying he did not intentionally try to cause harm.
The team's starting center, Day will miss the 14th-ranked Bulldogs' game against No. 6 Texas A&M on Oct. 4.
