WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Before the season, Nebraska coach Bo Pelini expressed worry over the new targeting rule — designed to protect players from head injuries — that might hurt the Huskers or some other team playing what’s coached as good, aggressive defense.

Saturday, NU was hit with its first targeting flag and first ejection when cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste was thrown out for leading with his helmet to hit Purdue running back Dalyn Dawkins in the head. Jean-Baptiste broke up the pass intended for Dawkins, but got the flag. The ejection notice was sent to review and upheld. It’s NU’s first ejection since the 2012 Capital One Bowl, when Alfonzo Dennard was ejected for fighting.
