PLAYERS: Matt Elam
TEAMS: Florida Gators

After Florida player Luchiez Purifoy made a nice tackle during a punt return, he decided to take a little time to celebrate on the sidelines. Unfortunately, Purifoy was not expecting what came next. While celebrating, his own teammate, Matt Elam ran full force and slammed into him. From the looks of it, Purifoy seemed to think it was someone from the other team and looked ready to fight. Instead, it was his own teammate who drilled him to the ground. Check out the video below:
