Nasty brawl erupts between Mississippi State-Tulsa at end of Armed Forces Bowl
A full-on brawl broke out at the end of the Armed Forces Bowl including several players on both teams throwing punches and even kicking opponents.
Mississippi State and Tulsa players met on the field for the post-game handshakes after the Bulldogs won 28-26 in the game played in Fort Worth, Texas. Then the brawl broke out.
ESPN broadcasters raised the issue of criminal charges being filed as the incident spilled off the field and across the sidelines. Dozens of players from both sides appeared very interested in joining the fray, which appeared to begin as the players were walking off the field near the end zone on the Tulsa sideline.
It was a spirited game throughout as Mississippi Stat had 11 penalties and Tulsa had seven in the game.
