Emotions ran high on and off the field during the Sugar Bowl between Alabama and Oklahoma on Thursday night. A female Crimson Tide fan attending the game jumped into a pile of Sooners fans in an attempt to fight.

Michael Connolly, the alleged victim of the attack, tweeted that the Alabama fan is a mother of three who had her children at the game.

Currently, there are no specifics on what started the incident. 

The Sooners ended up upsetting the Tide, 45-31.

Michelle Pritchett, the woman in the video, apologized to Alabama and Nick Saban while also explaining what had the happened according to USA Today:

It had nothing to do about the ball game. It had nothing to do with us losing. It started when he started taunting my son.

I apologize to the whole Alabama team, to Nick Saban. I apologize to the whole Alabama base. That’s not the way I would normally handle things. But when he told my son to come down there, that wasn’t going to happen.
