Former USC kicker Matt Boermeester asks court to reverse expulsion; school says girlfriend alleged previous abuse

Today 00:38 GMT

Attorneys for former USC kicker Matt Boermeester have filed a petition in Los Angeles County Superior Court seeking to have his expulsion from the school overturned.

Boermeester, who kicked the winning field goal in the Rose Bowl in January, was removed from the football team later that month after an alleged incident with his girlfriend, Zoe Katz, outside her home. The kicker was expelled in July after an investigation by USC’s Title IX office, though an anonymous appellate panel recommended a two-year suspension.
