Storming the field
With victory in hand, fans, mostly from the student section, storm the field in celebration of the big victory over our in-state rivals. The sea of humanity includes both fans, players and coaches and you can even see some Scum...er... Sun Devil players trying to get out of the way on the upper left. I was surprised at how well behaved the fans were this time - no one was climbing on the goal posts and they seemed relatively orderly compared to some past "storming of the field" events after big victories, for example over Washington and Cal several seasons ago. Unlike those victories, this one was not unexpected as the Wildcats were favored for a change. This image was taken with my 24mm lens at 1/100 seconds at f/5, ISO 800.
