BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - On Tuesday the Southeastern Conference announced that Mississippi State center Dillon Day will have to sit out the Texas A&M game on October 4.
The SEC suspended Day for multiple flagrant and unsportsmanlike acts during the win over LSU on Saturday in Baton Rouge.
On Monday Day posted on his Twitter account that he didn't intentionally try to cause harm to any of the LSU players. He said he was taught as a player never to quit, to go all out in case there's a fumble and he would be near the football. Day said in one of the plays he didn't know where to land and fell on the LSU player.
Video shows Day stepping on LSU defensive lineman Davon Godchaux and defensive back Rashard Robinson.
According to the SEC, the league reviewed a previous disciplinary action take for the same type of behavior when Day was suspended for one game last season after he stepped on an Auburn player.
