LOOK: Kentucky and Virginia Tech scuffle over an hour before kickoff

We’re still over an hour away from kickoff, and tempers are already flaring.

According to KSR intern Hayden Hooper, the Kentucky and Virginia Tech players needed to be separated on the field during pregame warmups.

Take a look:

According to Dick Gabriel of Big Blue Insider, one Virginia Tech player threw a punch at Lynn Bowden during the scuffle.

Gabriel then wrote that a Virginia Tech player threw a punch at a Kentucky assistant coach, as well.

“Eyewitness tells me a Tech player threw a roundhouse punch at a Ky assistant coach but missed,” Gabriel wrote. “Was pulled away by a Tech assistant.”

Here is some of the post-scuffle aftermath with the players being escorted off the field…

You can also file “putting the team locker rooms 20 feet apart” in the bad idea category…

Coming off the field, Lynn Bowden Jr. greeted fans, but did not look happy as he walked into the tunnel:

 

Returning to the field, Bowden needed a police escort…

ESPN just showed this video of the fight on First Take:

It’s going to be chippy, folks.

    Pre game or not guys throwing punches need to be tossed before the game even starts.

    I think VT is trying to intimidate and throw UK off of their game by trying to force Our guys to let their emotions get in the way of thier focus in this game. Is a cowards tactic that just show use how scared they actually are of use. I say let’s use that against them.

      I thought it was a VT player. If that’s the case I changed my mind. Mrs TT please delete that comment.

    Bowden should not be playing. Punk move on his part.

    VT plan worked to perfection when Bowden threw that punch.

    what kind of coach allows his players to target a player before the game ever starts, days before it starts? I have never seen Lynn act this way but who can blame him? I hope he comes out of this game uninjured….

    I am enjoying the game and glad he’s playing well. However, have to admit his punk move has soured this a little. For selfish reasons, could’ve put his team in an unwinnable situation. Hard to talk crap about Louisville win our own players pull crap like this.
