SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah State and current Los Angeles Rams linebacker Bobby Wagner tackled an individual that entered the field of play during a game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers hosted the Rams at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Monday, October 3.

Late in the first half, a fan exited the stands and entered the field. The individual ran down the field and waved his arms with a colorful smoke bomb in one hand.

As he ran down the sideline towards another Rams player and away from a pursuing security guard, Wagner leveled the individual with a big tackle.

During ESPN2’s broadcast of the game, Peyton & Eli Manning broke down Wagner’s tackle.

“Bobby Wagner, veteran play,” Peyton said.

The Rams vs. 49ers game is televised on ESPN and ESPN2.
