This is not something you see every day. Liberty’s punter, Aidan Alves, got ejected during Saturday’s game against Army for a vicious hit that was correctly ruled targeting.
Here’s the play that led to his ejection.

Twitter users all over the place were pretty amused and stunned by this development.
It is only Week Two, but Liberty's punter getting ejected for targeting is probably going to be the best moment of this college football season.

Just saw something I’ve never seen before in a football game: the Liberty punter was ejected from the game for targeting on a tackle during a punt return. Hey @G_Atkins17 just a reminder even kickers can be called for targeting

Liberty might be the first school ever to have its punter ejected for targeting. That's some sort of accomplishment right?
