The celebration of Oklahoma State’s first-ever Big 12 title took a dangerous turn Saturday night after several fans were injured in the jubilant, on-field free-for-all, the Associated Press is reporting.
Following the Cowboys’ Bedlam boot-stomping of Oklahoma in Stillwater, what appeared to be several thousand fans stormed the field. During the course of that celebratory moment, 13 fans suffered injuries, including two of which are described as critical.
Emergency medical personnel told the AP that several people were trampled in the rush of fans, and that one of those critically injured had fallen 15 feet in an attempt to get onto the field. Of the 13 injured, 11 were taken to local hospitals. The only specific injuries mentioned were leg fractures.
Two of the injured have already been released from the hospital.
