The film was shot at various locations in Texas. The University of North Texas in Denton, specifically Fouts Field , which was then UNT's football stadium, was a major location for filming football and college scenes.
Texas State's green and white uniforms in the movie are exactly the same colors worn by North Texas. In an unusual coincidence, Southwest Texas State University , the real team that is the fictional Texas State's first opponent in the film, was renamed Texas State University several years after the film was released.
Prior to the renaming a "Texas State University" did not exist. During one scene, when the team takes part in a scrimmage game with a team of convicts, cameos are made by several NFL players.

Johnny experiences some unnecessary roughness in the sequel, in the opening scene which takes place immediately after the first film's climactic fight.

Done in a potato sack race in Uncle Sam. In Escape to Victory , the German team commits many violent fouls against the Allied players, which the referee doesn't call. The reason is that the referee has been ordered by the German Army officers to cheat and help the German team win. Done repeatedly in Cars by Jerk Ass perennial runner-up Chick Hicks, who won't hesitate to slam other racers and cause a thirty-car pileup just to stop his rival.

While the referee Madam Hooch winds up screaming virtually non-stop at the Slytherin team and awarding Gryffindor half a dozen penalty shots, we don't know what kind of offence would result in someone being sent off and not even the Slytherin team ever outright assault an opponent. Quidditch is an exceptionally violent and dangerous game anyway—realistically, the bludgers could quite easily kill someone.

The smarter pros realize that and are also aware that the opposing team are actually ultra powerful wizards who will likely enact their own Unnecessary Roughness after the game.

In reality even slight damage to a race car can result in such a huge performance loss that drivers usually avoid contact at all costs. Anyway, every major organized motorsports competition has strict rules against deliberate vehicle contact, and will disqualify or even ban an offending driver who's being reckless.

You could watch wrestling matches constantly for 50 years and not see single instance where any such action resulted in a disqualification.

Greasing your skin, groin strikes, removing your opponent's ring gear, foreign objects and outside interference generally do get the referee to call for a DQ though.
If they see it happen. One that almost all promotions not affiliated with The National Wrestling Alliance have retired is knocking or throwing your opponent over the top rope.

Then-GM Vickie Guerrero banned the move both for petty reasons as well as the safety of the superstars. Later on, after the ban was lifted, the move was named the "Hell's Gate" and Undertaker routinely uses it to finish matches, though it no longer causes the opponent to cough up blood. The Al-Bhed Psyches kidnap Yuna to attempt to blackmail the Besaid Aurochs into throwing their game and beat Wakka up so badly he collapses.
Which comes off as even more unnecessary, considering they're overpowered to hell and back. And also because Yuna was able to free herself from the kidnappers just as help was about to come.
