Multiple ejections, penalties mark heated melee at halftime of Missouri-Florida
Three players were ejected, and every player on both teams was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty following a melee on the field at halftime of the Missouri-Florida game.
It appeared that the fight began after a late hit on Florida QB Kyle Trask, who threw a long pass to the end zone on the last play of the first half. Replay showed it was Missouri’s Trajan Jeffcoat who thumped Trask after he released the ball on the untimed down. Florida’s Zach Carter and Antwuan Powell, and Mizzou’s Tre Williams were ejected.
After there was no call from the referees, players began the pushing and shoving and then punches thrown.
Florida led 20-7 over Missouri at halftime, when the referee gathered coaches from both teams once the players went to the locker room.

Florida 52, 17 ejected.
Missouri’s Tre Williams ejected
All other players on both teams get one unsportsmanlike conduct foul. Anyone who gets a second one is ejected.

52 and 17 ejected for UF. I assume that means Zach Carter. 52 is Antwuan Powell.
