The third-ranked University of Alabama football team fell to the No. 11 Texas Longhorns on Saturday, and a viral video shows some fans apparently didn't take the 34-24 loss too well.
A video uploaded on Sunday allegedly shows some Alabama fans calling some Longhorns players on the sidelines "faggots" and telling the players to "go back to the projects" as the Texas players celebrated and mocked the fans late in the game.
Disgusting footage from the Texas-Bama game. Racist Bama students yelling racist remarks to the Texas players. Get this out to the recruits.@OBWire @AnwarRichardson @kyleumlang @espn @barstoolsports@TexasLonghorns @TexasFootball #AlabamaFootball#TexasFootball #Alabama #Texas pic.twitter.com/q9isz1fQtS— Longhorns Guy (@burntorangebuzz) September 10, 2023
Former Alabama star George Teague, who won a national title with the Tide in 1992, said the fans were disrespectful and added there "was no place for this."
I agree with that. No place for this.— George Teague (@Teaguefootball) September 11, 2023
The mother of Texas running back Tre Wisner called the fans a "disgrace" and claimed fans not only threw beer cans and water bottles at the Longhorns contingent but also spit on them.
The fact my son down there and they saying go back to the projects really just saddens my heart that as his mother no matter how old he had to listen to that!— Angie Wisner (@WisnerAngie) September 11, 2023
Love you Son!
But the parents went through this all night! Beer cans thrown at us, water bottles, spit! Disgrace https://t.co/4Jt89sycKt
The University of Alabama issued a statement regarding the incident, saying the university condemned the behavior.
"We are disgusted by reports of vile language and inappropriate behavior Saturday night," Monica Watts said in a statement from the university. "To be clear, we condemn this behavior, and it will not be tolerated in our venues. It is not representative of UA or our values. We expect all attendees to act with class and respect toward others. Fans are strongly encouraged to report issues to our security resources on-site. Gameday and delayed reports are appropriately addressed, and anyone found to be in violation of our rules and expectations is promptly removed and may be banned from future events."
