Video: Tennessee Fan Gets Brutally Clotheslined By Security After Rushing The Field

Tennessee fans love football - too much to patiently wait out a rain delay. 

During Tennessee's season opener at home against Bowling Green on Saturday, one Volunteers fan made the gutsy (and very unwise) decision to rush the field during the weather delay in Knoxville and found out what Mick Foley must have felt like when the Rock gave him the clothesline from hell and sent him crashing into the mat. But it wasn't the Rock who brought punishment against this fan, it was stadium security. And it was all caught on video thanks to Brantley Diggs.

It definitely wasn't the smartest decision of his life, but it would make a great addition to a college football blooper reel. And The Tennessean photographer Larry McCormack captured some amazing shots of the incident.
