Linebacker Ventrell Miller, one of the Florida Gators' leaders on defense, has been ejected from Saturday's game against Vanderbilt due to a targeting penalty.

Miller was adjudged to have used the crown of his helmet on a tackle of Vanderbilt tight end Ben Brosnahan during the fourth quarter. 

Miller, a redshirt senior, was clearly upset after the penalty was confirmed by the referee after he checked it on replay.
