Krause didn't have a chance to field the punt with 9:32 left in the third before Wade crashed into him, knocking him down. Krause lay on the field for several minutes before getting up and walking to the sideline.
Officials flagged the play immediately. Kenny Ladler picked up the ball and ran it back 24 yards for Vanderbilt, so the penalty was declined.
But officials announced Wade was ejected from the game. Vanderbilt was leading 21-17 at the time.
