Football Rivalry Takes Ugly Turn as Student Gets Kicked Square in the Face

News

Ouch.

An ugly fight broke out Saturday between two fans as the infamous Arizona and Arizona State football rivalry, also known as the "Duel in the Desert," heated up.

A video obtained by Deadspin, which was reportedly taken by a fan named “Michael,” shows an older man and a much younger ASU fan having what appears to be a heated back-and-forth.

As of this writing, it’s unclear what prompted the exchange between the two fans and it’s not clear what exactly was said. But we know this: It didn’t end well for the younger ASU fan.

Just see for yourself (content warning: Video contains strong language):

“That ASU bro probably thought he was in for a walk in the park when he started gettin' wise with the old man, and then BAM, foot to the face!” Deadspin’s Tom Ley wrote. “Have a seat, youngster.”

If it's any consolation to the fan who got a face full of shoe, ASU went on to trounce UA 58-21. So, hey, at least there's that.
