Apparently, tempers flared in the stands at the Alabama-Florida State game on Saturday.
The matchup between the Crimson Tide and Seminoles was billed as one of the most-anticipated college football openers ever. Given all the hype before Alabama’s 24-7 victory, you can understand that emotions were running high between members of both fan bases during the showdown at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
But it appears some people took the passion too far.
As you can see in the clip below, courtesy of Busted Coverage, a scuffle seemingly breaks out between a few Alabama and Florida State fans. This was a heated exchange, with a fist swung toward the end of the clip before the situation cooled.

This wasn’t the only fight involving an SEC fan base on Saturday. There was a scuffle at the Florida-Michigan game in Arlington, Texas, as well.
