Fields went out and returned, to throw a touchdown pass. He hobbled off the field in considerable pain after the hit.

After the TD pass, Fields was 12-of-13 for 172 yards and 3 TDs.

Skalski was ejected from the College Football Playoff championship game last season for another targeting foul.

There was a buzz on social media over the decision to call targeting and bounce Skalski.
