Have College Rivalries Gone Too Far?
Montgomery Co. Chief Deputy Derrick Cunningham says law enforcement has to be knowledgeable of the rivalries with extra security at games.
But as we know from recent years, those passions can drive some fans way too far.
Last weekend, at the LSU-Bama game, an Alabama fan was taunted and shot in the leg.
However, it's not known if the shooter was an LSU fan.
An Alabama fan Brian Downing, accused of committing sexual battery on an unconscious LSU fan after the LSU- BAMA BCS National Championship in 2012, is now serving time in prison.
But not everyone thinks the rivalries are all that bad.
"If they can stay safe. People can be smart and stay safe," said Sampson.
