Missouri star defensive end Shane Ray ejected from SEC championship game for personal foul

Missouri star defensive end Shane Ray has been ejected from the SEC championship game against Alabama following a hit on quarterback Blake Sims.

Ray hit Sims immediately after he threw a 58-yard touchdown pass to DeAndrew White in the second quarter of Saturday's game. The hit drew a chorus of boos from Crimson Tide fans when a replay was shown on the video boards at the Georgia Dome.

Officials immediately threw a flag and called a personal foul on Ray for targeting. Officials upheld the personal foul ruling following a video review and Ray was escorted off the field.

Ray leads the Southeastern Conference with 13 1/2 sacks and 20 1/2 tackles for loss. He set a Missouri record for sacks in a season.
