The Jackson State Tigers had an insane night against their opponent on Saturday night that did not end even after the game had come to an end.
Jackson State coach Deion Sanders missed three games this season due to complications from foot surgery, but he was back on the field in a wheelchair to lead them to a victory.
In the final minutes of Saturday night’s game, Sanders’ son, Shedeur, threw the go-ahead touchdown pass to give Jackson State a 21-17 lead over Southern. Shortly afterwards, Shedeur could be seen embracing his father in a heartwarming moment.
“I’m so proud of our young men for tonight’s comeback win,” Sanders tweeted on Saturday night. “This was right after Shedeur Sanders threw the game winning touchdown to Malachi Wideman with under 2 minutes left. I love y’all and I BELIEVE!”
However, Sanders couldn’t have like what immediately happened after Jackson State’s win as a brawl broke out at midfield. Things got a little chippy after the final knee was taken, and JSU’s players stormed the field.
One player took the team’s flag and tried to plant it at midfield on Southern’s logo.
The Southwestern Athletic Conference issued a statement on the brawl:
“The Southwestern Athletic Conference is currently reviewing the incident which took place at the conclusion of the Jackson State at Southern football game.
After a comprehensive review the Conference Office will make a determination regarding necessary next steps in accordance with the league’s constitution and bylaws.
The Southwestern Athletic Conference upholds a high standard of good sportsmanship and any conduct deemed detrimental to those efforts will be handled appropriately.”
