A video of the incident between Michigan State and Michigan players appeared to show the second skirmish between players after the Wolverines’ victory over the Spartans on Saturday.
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh said at the post-match press conference that there were two incidents after the match, but as of Sunday only one of the incidents has been documented. The second video surfaced and appeared to show a Spartans player using his helmet to hit a Wolverines player.
“Absolutely disgusting,” the video was captioned.

The first incident involved Michigan defensive back Ja’Den McBurrows. Videos posted to social media appeared to show at least three Michigan State players pushing, punching and kicking McBurrows in and near a hallway that does not lead to either team’s locker room.
There did not appear to be any other Michigan players near McBurrows when the incident occurred.
Harbaugh said a second player, who has not been identified, was also attacked and one was injured and may have a broken nose.
“Two of our players were assaulted,” Harbaugh said. “I saw on video – 10 on one. It was pretty bad. Need to investigate.”
An investigation is underway in partnership with Michigan State University Police and the Michigan Athletic Department and Football Program, University of Michigan Deputy Police Chief Melissa Overton said.
“Situations like these, and the safety of the community, are taken very seriously,” Overton said.

Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel said Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren, who attended the game, was also looking into the fight.
“What happened after the game was completely unacceptable,” Manuel said. “I’ve spoken to the commissioner. He’s looking into it. The police are looking into it because they’ve seen the video. That’s not how we should interact after the game. … That’s not how we should be the rivalry. It shouldn’t be the way we remember it.”
Another video showed a fan touching Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker on the top of the head. Tucker then swept the fan.
“I know it was a heated game,” Tucker said of the tunnel incident. “We were trying to get our guys into the locker room. We’ll have to see what happened.”
Tucker added more in tweets on Sunday: “As Spartans, our program has a responsibility to maintain the highest level of sportsmanship. While emotions were running high at the end of our rivalry game at Michigan Stadium, there is no excuse for behavior that puts our team or our opponents at risk.
