AMHERST, Mass.—Police are trying to identify five more people they say were involved in a post-Super Bowl disturbance at the University of Massachusetts.

Campus police have released photographs of the five people captured on campus surveillance cameras.

Deputy Chief Patrick Archbald tells the Daily Hampshire Gazette ( http://bit.ly/AjAnAI) they are expected to be charged with disorderly conduct, inciting a riot and failure to disperse. One man wearing a Patriots jersey seen punching someone wearing a Giants jersey could face assault and battery charges.

Fourteen people, including UMass 13 students, were arrested during the disturbance in the Southwest residential area that involved an estimated 1,500 people following the New York Giants' 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots on Feb. 5.

Police in riot gear used smoke grenades to disperse the crowd.
