The first quarter of Friday night’s Penn State game against Maryland has been highly eventful, and linebacker Micah Parsons added to that in a negative way.

Attempting to get to quarterback Josh Jackson, Penn State’s star linebacker hit Jackson late, and he lowered his head into Jackson’s head in the process.

The officials didn’t take long to review this play and determine that Parsons was guilty of targeting. He was ejected from the game, along with being hit with the 15-yard penalty.
