    Gabriel starred in the first half, completing 13-of-21 attempts for 191 yards and two touchdowns. He found chunk plays all over the field, looking to be again in Heisman form.

    However, following a run in the second quarter, Gabriel was tackled awkwardly and came down on the back of his head.

    Gabriel came out in the second half, playing the first series for two plays before ultimately being removed from the game. The removal of Gabriel from the game left the ESPN broadcast team in shock, and no immediate timetable for his return was given.
