NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A University of Alabama fan has pleaded guilty to two counts of obscenity for sexually taunting an unconscious LSU fan in New Orleans after this year's BCS national title game.

Prosecutors said a deal reached Tuesday before the scheduled trial for Brian H. Downing of Smith Station, Ala., calls for him to be sentenced to two years in jail.

State District Judge Karen Herman set sentencing for Nov. 29.

A video that went viral on the Internet appeared to show someone in a University of Alabama jacket performing a simulated sex act on an unconscious man at a Bourbon Street restaurant after the Crimson Tide beat LSU for the BCS football championship on Jan. 9.

Downing had pleaded not guilty in May to charges of sexual battery and obscenity.
