Eastern Michigan quarterback Mike Glass III just punched a referee. Yes, that's something that actually happened during the waning moments of the Quick Lane Bowl.

After smacking Pitt defender Cam Bright in the face mask, Glass rose up and took a swing at Pitt's Paris Ford but nailed the official before he could land the punch. Glass was ejected after that mess.

Reminder, this all happened during EMU's attempt at a game-winning drive.

Pitt beat Eastern Michigan 34-30 after a fantastic comeback that was capped off by this fantastic catch by Taysir Mack with just 47 second remaining:

It was a fantastic bowl game that obviously will be marred by the ugliness at the end. Glass III is a senior so it's really awful that his career will end on such a sour note. It was certainly not his finest moment.
