I don’t recall ever seeing this “blanket” penalty called.

During a kickoff that was a deep touchback in the first quarter, every Tennessee and Kentucky player received anĀ unsportsmanlike conduct foul for a near fight at mid-field. No punches were thrown, and things didn’t get ugly.

But the referees are making sure it doesn’t happen again.

So, if any other player receives anĀ unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, he will be ejected from the game.

At the time of the penalty, Kentucky was winning 7-3.

Here’s video of the penalty (video of the near fight is below):
