FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Mississippi State beat No. 22 Tulsa 28-26 in the Armed Forces Bowl, which was played in steady rain and ended in a massive brawl.

Jo’quavious Marks and Will Rogers scored rushing touchdowns, Rogers threw one touchdown pass and Emmanuel Forbes scored on a 90-yard interception return for Mississippi. Deneric Prince and Corey Taylor II had rushing touchdowns, Zach Smith threw a touchdown pass to Keylon Stokes, and Zack Long kicked two field goals for Tulsa.

Minutes after the game ended following an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Mississippi State on a late onside kick as Tulsa tried to make a comeback, the teams became involved in a large melee on the field. Tulsa coach Greg Montgomery said safety Kendarin Ray was treated for “some sort of concussion.”
