Alabama leading receiver Jameson Williams was ejected from Saturday's 24-22 four overtime win over Auburn after being called for targeting.
Williams was on the punt defense team and appeared to hit the return man with the crown of his helmet. The play was reviewed and upheld.
A few minutes later, Auburn quarterback TJ Finley found Kobe Hudson for a 15-yard touchdown to give the Tigers a 7-0 lead midway through the second quarter.
Williams entered the weekend ranked first on the team in receiving yards (1,218) and receiving touchdowns (13).
He also leads the team with two kickoff return touchdowns.
