A fan who made his way on the field during Saturday’s Oklahoma-Iowa State game had his one shinning moment quickly taken away after he was leveled by a security guard. “Take it off!”
Iowa State was favored by a point during Sunday’s home contest with No. 7 Michigan. That, however, didn’t stop the cyclone fans from storming the court after topping last year’s NCAA runner-ups, 77-70.
