Watch: College football brawl video goes viral
College football’s first weekend has already seen a major upheaval, as the Virginia Tech Hokies beat the North Carolina Tar Heels, 17-10, at home in front of home fans at Lane Stadium on Friday night.
“Obviously the shine is off,” Tar Heels head coach Mack Brown said after the loss. “Ratings don’t mean anything at this point. We’ve been overrated tonight.”
“We kept pushing them back in the second half. We couldn’t put the game aside and the defense continued to measure up,” Hokies coach Justin Fuente said after the surprise victory. . “It was as impressive a performance as I have seen it. It was amazing. To continue to answer the bell in the second half, it was really impressive.”
Tar Heels quarterback Sam Howell, who is expected to be one of the top picks in the 2022 draft, has said he doesn’t want an opening game loss to define the 2021 Tar Heels season.
“We can’t let this game define us,” Howell said. “We know what this team is capable of, although we haven’t shown it tonight.”
Sadly, another brawl video appeared online and went viral.
In the viral video posted to Twitter on Saturday morning, it appears an angry Tar Heels supporter is charging a large crowd of college students who were supporting the Hokies.
