No. 1 Alabama has suspended wide receiver DeVonta Smith for half of Saturday's home game vs. rival Tennessee after being ejected in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over Texas A&M, coach Nick Saban revealed on Monday.
Things got heated during the closing minutes of the game when Smith got into it with Aggies safety Leon O'Neal. Smith was blocking O'Neal on a run by Brian Robinson when the two got together. It appeared that O'Neal took a swing at Smith before Smith fired back. Both players were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, but only Smith was ejected for throwing a punch.
