BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The SWAC says it’s investigating a pre-game scuffle that happened before Saturday’s football game between Southern and Prairie View team members.
The SWAC says they, along with Southern and Prairie View, are collectively reviewing video footage of the altercation in order to positively identify all participants. In addition to investigating the altercation, the Conference Office is also currently reviewing the gameday security protocols that were in place for the respective contest.
The SWAC says the investigation is taking longer, due to the fact they’re having a hard time identifying all the players involved since they were not in uniform at the time. They also want to make sure they determine who was part of the fight and who was working to stop it.
Once complete, the SWAC will notify each school of its findings and if any disciplinary actions will be taken against anyone.
