Two rival high schools got into an intense food fight at a Texas-area Whataburger restaurant after a football game Saturday night and now administrators say some students could face suspension.

It rained burgers, ketchup, mustard, soda, and fries Saturday at the fast-food chain restaurant in San Antonio after Brandeis High School defeated O'Connor 12-10 on the field, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

Many of those at the Whataburger food fight took cell phone videos of the chaos and posted the clips to YouTube, and now school administrators say they may use that footage to discipline students.

"Campus administrators will review videos to identify students who will face appropriate consequences including suspension from school," Pascual Gonazale, a spokesman for Northside Independent School District, said in a statement. "NISD will also cooperate with law enforcement and restaurant management in pursuing criminal charges if warranted."

Students who were not involved in the food fight took to Twitter to condemn their classmates' behavior.

Whataburger, however, didn’t seem to think the food fight was that big of a deal.

"Clearly the rivalry between select students from these two high schools got out of hand, resulting in a 30-second food fight that required our team to close the dining area for 30 minutes to clean up the mess left behind," the restaurant said in a statement.

"We understand that this act was an emotional moment between a small group of students and not representative of the entire student population. The Whataburger team will continue to welcome Brandeis and O'Connor students at our restaurants and we're also committed to continuing the partnership and support of both high schools."
