JJ Watt is a huge Zac Brown Band fan, both literally and figuratively. During a recent Zac Brown Band performance a fan wearing an Alabama Crimson Tide football shirt rushed the stage and was quickly met by Watt and his 6’5″, 288-pound frame.
Watt, a defensive end for the Houston Texans, tweeted this message after the show and tackle:

It’s being rumored that the tackle was staged in order to drum up press for a big-time, opening weekend college football game featuring the Alabama Crimson Tide and Watt’s alma mater, the University of Wisconsin Badgers.
Staged or not, don’t mess with Zac Brown. Or his band.
