Thanksgiving weekend is supposed to be a joyous time for family and friends. However, for college football, this week, especially weekend, is known as “Rivalry Week.”
The North Carolina Tar Heels and the North Carolina State Wolfpack have bad blood for each other. The two sides had a brawl in Friday’s game.
One of the North Carolina players were ejected after he threw a punch during a fight. Benches cleared during the brawl.
The Tar Heels, who are suffering through one of their worst seasons in school history, saw backup defensive tackle Jalen Dalton ejected from the game. After the brawl, referee Stuart Mullins, along with his staff, handed out multiple offsetting penalties.
The incident happened near midfield with six minutes before halftime. The incident happened when Wolfpack’s Matt Dayes fumbled the ball.
After the fumble, the ball then squirted approx. 20 yards down the field. As the ball was going down the field, at least four players attempted to scoop up the ball with no luck.
There was a pileup near midfield, Dalton was seen hitting Wolfpack lineman Terronne Prescod. Even North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora attempted to calm down Dalton; however, he was unsuccessful, even when he attempted to get him under control by restraining him by his collar.
The play, which caused the brawl, was ruled incomplete.
