Antics from opposing fan bases occur quite frequently in the world of college athletics. Of course, the most notable of instances can usually be found on the hardwood rather than the gridiron. However, that does not exempt football from providing such cases.
Recently, an Oklahoma St. Cowboys cheerleader, Jarid Atkinson, has garnered attention around the interwebs. His attempt at tripping up Eric Striker, an Oklahoma Sooners linebacker, in the endzone after the game was in hand at the annual Bedlam Rivalry game has gone viral.
Atkinson told OSU deputy athletic director Dave Martin that he wasn't actually trying to trip Striker, but that he was instead playfully sticking his foot out in a mocking manner. - NewsOK
Correct me if I am reading too much into it or am flat out wrong here but, as Jalen Saunders crosses through the endzone, Atkinson can clearly be seen stepping forward toward the field of play. As Saunders crosses in front of the aforementioned cheerleader, it appears as though spit flys in his general direction.
