Massive Brawl Breaks Out After Bowl Game
After the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl ended, a massive brawl erupted between the football teams of Mississippi State University and the University of Tulsa, CBS Sports reported. It is unclear what started the fighting, which was broken up by coaches and law enforcement. Mississippi State athletic director John Cohen released a statement on Friday in which he called the brawl “inexcusable.” The head football coach at Tulsa, Philip Montgomery, released this statement: “There is no place in the game of football or our program for the actions that occurred after Thursday’s bowl game. It is not who we are. It is not part of our culture. It will not be tolerated. I’m sick about this ending to what was an otherwise incredible season for a talented team.”
Both universities said they would investigate.
