East Mississippi Community College and Mississippi Delta Community College squared off on the football field Thursday night, but a wild fight ended the matchup before they could even reach halftime.

East Mississippi was cruising along on the road with a 48-0 lead with 59 seconds left in the second quarter before all heck broke loose. Even fans got in on the mix.

It's unclear if East Mississippi will be credited with a win. The team is slated to host a playoff game next weekend, but the status of that contest is up in the air because players who leave the bench during a fight are supposed to be suspended one game.

Scott Walters, a reporter for the Commercial Dispatch in Columbus, Miss., was at the game and tweeted updates, including some comments from EMCC head coach Buddy Stephens:

EMCC has already been at the center of controversy this season. Last month, a referee was tossed from a game after he threw a punch and a clipboard at Stephens, who was also suspended one game for his role in the altercation.
