Targeting calls set record in college football

FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2017, file photo, Hawaii wide receiver Kalakaua Timoteo, center, drops the ball as he gets hit by UCLA linebacker Josh Woods, left, and defensive back Mossi Johnson (21) at the goal line, during the second half of an NCAA college football game in Pasadena, Calif. Woods was penalized for targeting and ejected. Targeting penalties in the Football Bowl Subdivision increased for the fourth straight season and an analysis by The Associated Press found that the Pac-12 and SEC had the most players flagged this season. The NCAA reported an all-time high of 188 enforced targeting calls in 832 regular-season games. Last year, there were 144 in 839 games. (AP Photo/Alex Gallardo, File)
