Its been a time honored tradition for decades, but now streaking at a college football game could earn one undergrad up to 18 months in prison.

It probably didn't help University of Arizona undergraduate, Jace Lankow, that a near riot took place after he stripped to his skivvies during last Thursday nights University of Arizona and UCLA game.

Lankow was able to get great field position after dressing up as a Pac 10 ref while a play was being blown dead. He almost got away with it if it weren't for those meddling security guards!

As security and everybody else, except for the players, were being distracted a huge riot unfolded as the benches cleared and the teams squared off for a brawl.

Ten players ended up begin suspended and Lankow could get 18 months after being charged with a class 6 felony impersonation.

In a perfect world Lankow's major would be criminal justice. He would have his thesis nailed!
