Eastern Michigan's Korey Hernandez sucker punches South Alabama player, AD condemns actions

Dec 25, 2023

Eastern Michigan defensive back Korey Hernandez started a brawl after he ran up and sucker punched South Alabama defensive back Jamarrien Burt in the head.

The incident occurred after the Jaguars completed their 59-10 rout of the Eagles in the 68 Ventures Bowl on Saturday. As South Alabama was singing its alma mater in front of its home fans and the band at Hancock Whitney Stadium, Hernandez ran in from out of the frame and hit Burt from behind.

On Sunday, Eastern Michigan athletic director Scott Wetherbee addressed the situation in a statement.
