At least a dozen people were injured after thousands of football fans stormed the field at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater after the school’s win over Oklahoma.

As fans celebrated OSU’s 44-10 victory Saturday night, fans took to the field and tore down goalposts.

Two people were critically injured.

“Somewhere in the course of these fans jumping onto the field, they fell approximately 15-20 feet striking concrete,” said LifeNet EMS Director of Operations Michael Authement.

At least 11 other people suffered injuries that included broken ankles and back sprains.

“There were thousands of people. Thousands of people stormed the field. You couldn’t move there were so many people,” Authement told The Associated Press.
