South Carolina’s DQ Smith ejected from Texas A&M game after targeting penalty

South Carolina starting safety DQ Smith was ejected from Saturday’s game after a targeting call in the third quarter against Texas A&M.

Because the ejection happened in the second half of the game, Smith will be ineligible for next week’s first half against Jacksonville State at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Smith had three tackles against the Aggies, including two solo. He was being consoled on the sideline by head coach Shane Beamer after the call was made.

Texas A&M was leading the game 21-10 at the time of the ejection.
