Mississippi State and Tulsa treated fans to a hard-fought game in the Armed Forces Bowl on Thursday, but things quickly turned ugly after the final whistle blew.

A wild brawl broke out in the moments following Mississippi State’s 28-26 win. Players from both sides appeared to throw swings as coaches stood in the middle and tried to separate them. Things then quickly got out of hand. You can see the video below.

Tempers flared right out of the gate, as the two teams also got into a minor scuffle before the game even kicked off. There were then several unsportsmanlike conducts handed out during the game.
