LSU standout pass rusher Ali Gaye has been removed from tonight’s game for a clear targeting call.

Gaye got the boot after fully launching himself at Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis when Travis released a touchdown pass in the third quarter.

Gaye made it an easy call for officials as he led with the crown of his helmet and shot Travis in the head.

Targeting is probably the most maligned and controversial penalty in college football, but this seemed obvious.

Referees had no choice.

LSU is currently trailing Florida State 17-10 late in the third period. They will have to try to come back without Gaye’s services.
