Once Oklahoma State prevailed over its principal rival Oklahoma with a devastating 44–10 scoreline, the fans of the winners burst on to the playing field in thousands, tearing down goalposts and leaving 13 injured, two of them in critical condition.
The American football fans marked the violent celebration by jumping off the stands, with some hitting the field while others were getting trampled. The incident took place at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, where 58,000 visitors attended the final game of the championship. It took the police no less than 45 minutes to clear the field from the madding crowd.
Winning the Big 12 Championship on Saturday has become for the first outright conference title for Oklahoma State since 1948.
