Eastern Michigan apologizes for player's punch vs. South Alabama





Eastern Michigan has "strongly" condemned the "completely unacceptable" actions of a player who sucker punched a South Alabama player in the back of the helmet, leading to a postgame brawl following the 68 Ventures Bowl on Saturday night.

A video of the incident on social media shows Eastern Michigan defensive back Korey Hernandez running across the field and punching South Alabama cornerback Jamarrien Burt in the back of the head while Burt was facing the stands for the school's alma mater following the Jaguars' 59-10 victory in Mobile, Alabama.
