CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Three people were escorted out of the field at Bank of America Stadium after rushing the field during the Belk Bowl on Friday.

According to PETA's Twitter account, three of the organization's supporters demanded that one of the schools playing in the Belk Bowl, Texas A&M University, needs to "shut down a lab that tortures dogs bred to have muscular dystrophy."

The organization's supporters were wearing black sweatshirts and held us a sign that read, "TAMU, Stop Cruel Dog Testing."

PETA did not identify the three supporters involved in Friday's protest.

Wake Forest defeated Texas A&M, 55-52, in the Belk Bowl.
