As if Iowa State's football game at Texas Tech wasn't dramatic enough during the Cyclones' attempted comeback, players and coaches had to take a brief pause after fans threw items into the field.

With Iowa State trailing by 10 points in the fourth quarter, Cyclone quarterback Brock Purdy overthrew a pass to tight end Charlie Kolar, which appeared at first to be intercepted by the Red Raiders. After one of the game's several reviews, it was announced as an incomplete pass, giving Iowa State the ball back near the Texas Tech goal line.

Texas Tech fans didn't seem too happy with the number of reviews going against the Red Raiders, and voiced their displeasure by throwing items onto the field.

Two sections of fans were asked to clear out. Some fans filtered into neighboring sections.

Iowa State punched it in later in the drive to bring the score within three points, 38-35.
