Oregon coach Mark Helfrich announced Monday that some players face "disciplinary actions" for participating in a snowball fight that went viral online.

The unidentified players reportedly organized the snowball fight and more than 100 other students were involved.

The video shows the students stopping several cars and throwing snowball at them. They also dumped containers of snow on vehicle windshields.

"On Saturday, I was made aware of an incident that occurred Friday afternoon during the snow day involving multiple Oregon students, including members of the football team," Helfrich said in a statement. "The behavior exhibited in the video is completely unacceptable and dangerous. We take this matter very seriously and disciplinary actions have begun."
