Oregon player punches Oregon State fan after devastating loss
Emotions ran high after the Oregon Ducks blew a three-touchdown lead to their rival Oregon State Beavers on Saturday.
After the upset win, Oregon State fan stormed the field and Ducks linebacker DJ Johnson was caught punching a Beaver fan. The fan raised his hand in Johnson’s direction, and began to walk away.
He turned his back to Johnson, and was eventually restrained by two coaches ..

The Ducks led 31-10 with just under five minutes to go in the fourth quarter, but the Beavers outscored Oregon 28-3 to close the game and win the game, 38-34.
The loss was devastating for Oregon, as they controlled their own destiny to a Pac-12 title game appearance. But with the loss, the Ducks now need Washington to lose to Washington State. The Ducks will lose a tiebreaker against the Utah Utes if the Huskies win.

This isn’t the first time this season a college football player has been aggressive with a fan this year – Alabama’s Jermaine Burton was caught striking a female Tennessee fan after the Vols’ thrilling win over the Crimson Tide back in October.
