A vicious brawl at the Alcorn State cafeteria on Monday resulted in the arrest of 11 football players, according to the Clarion-Ledger.
The brawl began in the cafeteria but eventually made its way into the parking lot. Multiple students filmed the fight, which included well over a dozen people.
Alcorn State head coach Fred McNair—brother of Hall of Fame QB and former Alcorn State QB Steve McNair—has yet to comment on the fight and arrests.
The school released a statement via ESPN:
