Davis was penalized on the play, but many questioned whether he should have been ejected or even suspended for the low blow. He took to Twitter to defend himself Friday afternoon, saying that he thought a wide receiver screen was called and blocked accordingly.

Texas wide receiver Mike Davis should consider himself lucky that he only drew a 15-yard penalty on the play above Thursday night rather than getting ejected from the UT-Iowa State game entirely.
Several moments after teammate Joe Bergeron ran in for a six-yard touchdown, Davis dove straight at the knees of Cyclones DB Deon Broomfield. Only the most diehard Texas apologist would...
