The large display board fell while it was “undergoing maintenance,” the university’s athletic department said in a tweet, adding that no one was hurt in the incident.

“While undergoing maintenance this afternoon, our scoreboard dropped unexpectedly from its lowered position just above the floor,” the tweet said. “There were no injuries. The scene is being assessed for damage.”

The message was also retweeted by the university’s Twitter page.
