Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops didn't shed much light Tuesday on reports that some Sooner football players may have been involved in an on-campus fight.

OU police used pepper spray to quell the fight, which occurred about 1 a.m. Sunday at a fraternity function.

According to a sketchy OU police report, police became concerned about the size of a crowd inside the OU Armory during an after-party for the Nupestock Step Show. The show was produced by Kappa Alpha Psi, a black fraternity.

A fight broke out on the west side of the armory and police used pepper stray to subdue the crowd, the report said.

OU police shut down the party and told people to leave. Minutes later, another fight broke out on the north side of the building. Police estimated a crowd of 800 was in the area.

There have been broadcast reports that football players were involved.

"To my knowledge, we have not had any one of our players arrested or charged with anything, so it wouldn't be fair for me to do anything else until they're finished reviewing anything that they are," Stoops said. "So there's really nothing I can do at this point that I know about."

He said any disciplinary action would be handled internally.

"Obviously, we're in the middle of trying to figure out what all has happened," Stoops said.
