Alabama’s Jordan Battle Gets Ejected From National Championship Game After Knocking Out Ohio State’s Jeremy Ruckert With Vicious Hit


Alabama was forced to play the second half of their national championship game without one of their star defensive backs.

During Monday night’s Ohio State-Alabama game, Crimson Tide safety Jordan Battle was ejected from the game for targeting after delivering a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit on Ohio State’s Jeremy Ruckert.

Before the ejection, the Alabama safety had three tackles in the game vs. Ohio State.

Battle was in tears on the sideline after getting ejected.
