CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

One of the memorable traditions of the University of Cincinnati Bearcat marching band is the charging down the steps at Nippert Stadium.

The brass, woodwind and color guard sections line up at the top of Nippert Stadium and charge down the stadium steps into formation.

During Thursday's night game against Miami (Florida), a band member fell victim to the tradition and ate some turf for dinner.

In the video, the saxophone player successfully runs down the stairs, but as he he heads to the end zone, he stumbles.

The saxophone player gets up, adjusts his hat and continues running to his spot. What a champion. 

This isn't the first time a band member has fallen victim to the charge. 

A few years ago, a trumpet player went down hard and lost a mouthpiece while running down the stadium steps.
