MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Fireworks and fisticuffs at the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth between Mississippi State and Tulsa.
Bulldogs up a point late in the third. Tulsa driving, but Zach Smith’s pass is picked off by State’s Emmanuel Forbes, and 90 yards later he’s in the end zone for the pick-six. It’s the longest INT return TD in Bulldog History and helps propel Mississippi State to a 28-26 victory. But, it doesn’t end there.
The tension between the two teams boils over into an all-out brawl when the game is over. No real word yet on what starts the melee, but the video shows Tulsa safety throwing punches, and then we see State receiver Malik Heath Kick Martin on the ground and run away.
The wild scene goes on for several minutes, with one Tulsa player having to be helped off the field. It’ll take a while to review the video and sort out exactly who did what to whom.
