By rule, Hamlin was ejected for the game, but because the play happened in the first half of the game, he will not be suspended for Pitt’s next game.
Hamlin was leading Pitt with five solo tackles before being ejected. He was replaced by redshirt senior Jazzee Stocker. The Panthers led North Carolina, 17-10 at halftime.
