Kentucky star RB Benny Snell has been ejected from the Music City Bowl after making contact with a referee in the second quarter.

The referee put his hands out to potentially help up Snell following a run, but the Wildcats RB pushed the referees hands away. It wasn’t violent, and it wasn’t a big deal.

However, Snell was ridiculously ejected from the game for making contact with the official.

Below is the replay:

It’s one thing to give a warning to a player, but an ejection was completely unnecessary.

Northwestern leads Kentucky 10-7.
