Eric Smith’s Knee To The Back Leaves Oregon’s Dion Jordan Bloodied (Video)
Most people were likely expecting a shootout in Glendale last night during the BCS National Championship Game between the Auburn Tigers and the Oregon Ducks. What they were treated to instead was a stellar performance from both defenses during this low scoring physical affair.
The physicality appeared to hit its peak near the end of the second quarter following a kickoff return as Auburn’s Eric Smith delivered a vicious knee to the rear of an unsuspecting Dion Jordan, sending the Ducks’ defensive end head first into the ground.
The cheap-shot left Jordan with a bloody face and his team with good field position with 1:47 left in the half. Unfortunately, the Ducks offense was unable to capitalize. That appeared to be the theme of the night as they fell to the Tigers by a score of 22-19.
Here is a look at Smith’s dirty knee to the back of Jordan.
