Three college football players from Michigan State University raised their fists during the US national anthem on Saturday, emulating NFL players who have chosen the gesture to protest racial inequality.

The protest by fullback Delton Williams, defensive end Gabe Sherrod and safety Kenney Lyke - who are all black - took place at the outset of Michigan State's home game against Wisconsin, rivals in the popular Big Ten conference, the Michigan news website mlive.com reported with a photo of the three.
