Temple’s fantastic football season came to an end last night with a 24-13 loss to the Houston Cougars, but what happened after the game was perhaps even more disturbing.

Several videos show security guards tackling, beating and body slamming students as they rushed the field to celebrate.

The guards in question (wearing yellow vests) were employees of Contemporary Services Corporation, which issued a post-game statement published by ABC13 Houston.

Contemporary Services Corporation (CSC) is aware of the events that occurred following today’s University of Houston football game. Training is provided to CSC employees for responding to such situations. Any actions by CSC personnel that contradict our training, CSC’s other requirements, or the law, are not condoned by CSC and will not be tolerated. We are currently performing an investigation of the events and will take appropriate action based on the outcome of our investigation.
