The SEC is reportedly looking into a post-game incident between LSU and Texas A&M in which punches were allegedly thrown by members of the teams' staffs.

Photos and video surfaced online of a post-game skirmish between apparent members of the Tigers and the Aggies.

More details regarding the post-game incident have started to surface today.

The Daily Advertiser had more details:

LSU offensive analyst Steve Kragthorpe, 53, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2011 and has had a pacemaker in his chest to stimulate his brain since 2017, was punched by a credentialed man from the Texas A&M sideline in the chest. That is when LSU director of player development Kevin Faulk, a former LSU and NFL star back from Carencro, went after the man, whose identity has not been confirmed by A&M.

"Out of nowhere, I got nailed," Kragthorpe said in a phone interview while he drove back home from the game Sunday afternoon. "I didn't go down, but I clutched over. I was like, 'Damn, he got me right in my pacemaker.' Then it started fluttering like he jostled it."

The SEC is reportedly looking into the post-game incident.

LSU did contact the SEC office about the incident on Saturday night, senior associate athletic director for external communications Robert Munson said Sunday.

SEC associate commissioner Herb Vincent said Sunday the league was looking into the situation.
