Football: Terrel Hunt ejected in second quarter

Austin Wilson will lead the Orange offense in the second half.

Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt was ejected from Friday evening's season-opener against Villanova after throwing a punch at defender Dillon Lucas.

Hunt scrambled for a first down with 3:24 left in the second quarter when he was hit above the shoulders by Lucas. When both players landed on the turf, Hunt immediately clenched his left hand and struck the facemask of Lucas.

By rule, a punch necessitates an automatic ejection.

Sophomore quarterback Austin Wilson entered the game for Syracuse, which held a 10-7 lead.
