Saturday night's seven-overtime classic between LSU and Texas A&M was marred by an ugly post-game incident that is being looked into by the SEC.

The scuffle between personnel from both schools included LSU offensive analyst Steve Kragthorpe, who suffers from Parkinson's, getting punched. Reportedly, the Texas A&M staffer who hit Kragthorpe is Cole Fisher, the nephew of Aggie head coach Jimbo Fisher.

LSU staff member Kevin Faulk was also involved and Tigers safety John Battle can also be seen throwing a punch.

Fisher released a statement tonight regarding the "unfortunate" incident that occurred. In it, he says he has been examining video, along with the A&M administration, LSU and the SEC.

Fisher's full statement is below:

Stay tuned for more information on the SEC's review of the incident.

It will be interesting to see if punishments are handed out.
