Anger and targeting penalties do not mix.

Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason and Florida coach Dan Mullen jawed at each other after Vanderbilt’s Dare Odeyingbo was hit and injured on a punt return late in the second quarter in Nashville.

As Odeyingbo was being checked by trainers in the middle of the field, Mason walked over to check on the starting defender. Mason verbally engaged Mullen shortly thereafter, and Gators defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, from the Florida sideline, chirped at Mason as well.

Vanderbilt’s Dayo Odeyingbo, Dare’s younger brother, and a group of Vanderbilt players rushed out to midfield as Mason told them to get back to the sideline.

Florida linebacker James Houston was ejected for targeting on the hit to Dare Odeyingbo, while linebacker Vosean Joseph was ejected for his second unsportsmanlike conduct of game. Both teams received offsetting unsportmanlike conduct personal foul penalties.

Dare Odeyingbo returned to the game before the first half ended.
