PROVO, Utah (ABC 4 News) -BYU's football team plays Idaho Saturday night in Provo, but the Cougars are going to be without two players on senior night: sophomore linebacker Zac Stout and senior defensive back Joe Sampson. It’s all because of a fight on Halloween that was caught on tape.

This fight happened just before 3 a.m. Nov. 1 at Rancharito Restaurant in Provo.

The surveillance video shows several young people in what looks like a heated discussion. Then the man in a gray t-shirt throws the first punch and the violence erupts... with several people whaling away at each other.

The video also shows a man in a black t-shirt punch a young woman in the head. She falls to the ground.

The fight spills over from the dining area to a order counter where another camera captures two men wrestling on the ground and then a total of five guys fist fighting.

Provo police say they are still trying to identify everyone involved, but say there are allegations some of the men are members of the BYU football team.

Police say once the investigation is complete the Provo city attorney will decide what, if any, charges will be filed.
