STARKVILLE, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On Tuesday, the SEC announced that Dillon Day is suspended for Mississippi State's next game against Texas A&M.

Day was caught on video stomping on an LSU player during last weekend's game in Baton Rouge.

In a release, the conference said:

Upon review of game video from the contest between LSU and Mississippi State on Sept. 20 in Baton Rouge, La., SEC Commissioner Mike Slive has announced that Mississippi State senior center Dillon Day is suspended for the Bulldog's next game, which is scheduled for Oct. 4 in Starkville.

This action is the result of multiple flagrant and unsportsmanlike acts during the game, as well as previous disciplinary action for similar behavior.

This action is taken in accordance with Southeastern Conference Constitution, Article 4.4.2 (d) which states that a student-athlete may be suspended if it is determined that the student-athlete has committed a flagrant or unsportsmanlike act.

Day apologized on Monday via Twitter and said that it was not intentional.

MSU is scheduled to play Texas A&M on October 4.
