Patrick Mahomes is in the crowd for Monday's national championship game between the Texas Tech Red Raiders and Virginia Cavaliers, but he isn't the only one in attendance with quite the arm.

According to Oskar Garcia of the Associated Press, the game was paused in the first half when someone from the Texas Tech student section threw a tortilla shell onto the court. Garcia noted security had to take away a number of tortillas from fans after the incident.

Nate Scott of USA Today's For the Win explained it is a Texas Tech tradition to throw tortilla shells onto the field at football games, so this wasn't just a random act.

Air Raid offense on the gridiron, hard-nosed defense on the hardwood and tortilla-throwing in the crowd. It's just what Texas Tech does.
