The brawl started after the Memphis defense picked off a BYU pass in the 2nd OT and immediately started celebrating, some players choosing to do so in front of the BYU bench.
As you can see in the video below, that didn’t sit very well with BYU players. You can understand why tempers might flare, especially after such a back-and-forth game.
Easily the guy who got the worst of the fight was #12 Kai Nacua. He can be seen throwing real, actual punches in the clip below (on the left he comes in).
But wait, it gets worse. Keep your eye on Kai at the end of that clip, and then watch this. Homeboy gets knocked to the ground, giving Kai what we’re guessing what his first appearance on the BYU Instagram meme @SleepOnTheField.
Unhappy with getting embarassed on national television, Kai then goes and does something cowardly like this.
More than likely, that sucker punch will be the last action that Kai sees in a BYU uniform. I’m guessing a religious school won’t stand for that kind of behavior.
Expect serious penalties to come down on both teams.
