No appeal for Huskers’ targeting penalties
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Cam Taylor-Britt and Deontai Williams are suspended for the first half of Nebraska’s upcoming game against Wisconsin. Both players were penalized for targeting in the Huskers' season-opening game. Nebraska head coach Scott Frost said the Huskers won’t seek to reverse Taylor-Britt and Williams' status for Saturday.
“I don’t believe there’s a process to appeal,” Frost said. “We’re kind of stuck with the outcome of it whether we agree with it or not.”
Taylor-Britt and Williams are both starting defensive backs for the Huskers. Their penalties, neither of which appeared malicious, have sparked a spirited discussion regarding the consequences of targeting. FOX college football analyst gave a passionate speech while advocating for the rules to be revised.
