LOS ANGELES >> At least three Southern California fans have been taken to hospitals after they stormed the Coliseum field following the Trojans’ 20-17 upset victory over No. 5 Stanford.

USC spokesman Tim Tessalone says three fans were taken away. One fan had an injured leg, while another a blood pressure concern and a third had a medical issue related to diabetes.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Katherine Main says 10 people were taken to hospitals from the Coliseum on Saturday night — five during the game and five more after the game. She had no immediate details on the injuries or when they occurred, but said the injured were in fair condition.

Thousands of fans flooded onto the field after the Trojans upset the Cardinal on a last-minute field goal.
