Coca-Cola Southern Miss Baseball Classic Day 2

Southern Mississippi and Louisville played an absolute classic on Saturday which ended up with both benches clearing and punches thrown by some players. Southern Mississippi rallied to score four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to win the ballgame on a 2 out and two strike single by Micheal Ewing. After the runs scored, A Brawl broke out on the field according to reports but I would like to know if any action will be taken against any players.
