HOUSTON – Video sent to KPRC 2 shows a fan being assaulted by a security guard after the University of Houston's football game Saturday.

UH defeated Temple 24-13 Saturday at TDECU Stadium to win the American Athletic Conference championship. Fans flocked to the field after the win, but video showed security guards with Contemporary Services Corporation getting into altercations with students.

Hunter Yurachek, UH's Vice President for Athletics, released a statement that said the university is terminating its contract with CSC:

"After viewing initial videos of today's postgame activity, I am extremely disappointed and angered with the actions taken by individuals employed by our security contractor CSC. We are working with the Univeristy of Houston police to review today's activities and will take swift and appropriate action inlcuding the termination of our current contract with CSC and any legal action deemed necessary."

CSC released a statement that read:

"Contemporary Services Corporation (CSC) is aware of the events that occurred following today's University of Houston football game. Training is provided to CSC employees for responding to such situations. Any actions by CSC personnel that contradict our training, CSC's other requirements, or the law, are not condoned by CSC and will not be tolerated. We are currently performing an investigation of the events and will take appropriate action based on the outcome of our investigation."
