The Big 12 Conference announced a public reprimand of University of Texas football student-athlete Mike Davis for his action leading to assessment of a personal foul penalty during Texas’ third-quarter touchdown in Thursday night’s game at Iowa State. 

“In accord with the Conference’s Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct policy, Mr. Davis’ action was in violation of the rule prohibiting physically abusive acts toward an opponent’s team members during a contest,” said Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby.  “Given the heightened emphasis on player safety, unnecessary and illegal acts such as this have no place in the game and are unacceptable.  Mr. Davis is also put on notice that any future such behavior may result in a more serious penalty, including possible suspension.”
