It's not terribly uncommon for fans of football teams to get into fights at games, but it's usually rivalry games. Maybe a game like Michigan-Ohio State, Alabama-Auburn, Florida-Florida State or Texas-Oklahoma would be a ripe setting for something like that, but bowl games are usually pretty mellow.
Those kinds of games usually feature two teams that almost never meet and so the fan bases don't have any hostility toward each other. For whatever reason, that was most certainly not the case in the 2016 Russell Athletic Bowl that was an ACC-Big 12 matchup featuring the Miami Hurricanes and West Virginia Mountaineers.

WVU Fan Threatens To Pee On Rival Fan, Gets Punched
A West Virginia fan with a prosthetic leg and a shorter Miami fan started yelling at each other in the bathroom at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. The Mountaineers fan threatens to pee on the 'Canes fan, and then the Miami fan slaps the bigger man and runs off before he has a chance to take a hit.
The WVU fan then yells, "I used to f*** guys like you in prison!" at him as he runs off. It's all capture on video. I know exactly who I am not messing with the next time I enter Morgantown, West Virginia.
