MSU center Dillon Day is suspended for the Texas A&M game, the Southeastern Conference announced on Tuesday.
Day was caught on video stomping two LSU players last Saturday. Day apologized on Monday and said it was not intentional.
“I didn’t see anything wrong with it,” MSU head coach Dan Mullen said on Tuesday. “We completely disagree with the ruling that was given to us by the league, but we are going to follow what the commissioner’s decisions are.”
The league’s release stated, “This action is the result of multiple flagrant and unsportsmanlike acts during the game, as well as previous disciplinary action for similar behavior.”
He was suspended for the first half of last year’s Troy game after a similar incident against Auburn the week before.
This action is taken in accordance with SEC Constitution Article 4.4.2 (d) which states that a student-athlete may be suspended if it is determined that the student-athlete has committed a flagrant or unsportsmanlike act.
The Bulldogs and Aggies meet at Davis Wade Stadium on Oct. 4.
