In a statement, Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis said the Big Ten determined that MSU offensive lineman Jack Allen didn't violate the conference's sportsmanlike conduct policy.
A video Ohio State sent to the Big Ten appeared to show Allen trying to get his gloved hand inside the facemask of Ohio State defensive lineman Johnathan Hankins during Saturday's Ohio State victory in East Lansing. At the same time, Hankins was trying to get his hands inside Allen's facemask.
Hollis concluded that Allen's actions ``weren't a football play'' but also it was not an eye-gouging incident.
