A mystery illness hit nearly two dozen students at a high school football game in Houston Friday night- all complaining of nausea.

They were taken to area hospitals to be checked out. All were drill team and band members on the field. One firefighter also felt nauseous for a few minutes.

"Three dancers moved to the side and started throwing up, then as we got to the stands more started falling," said one witness.

Hazmat teams could find no chemicals or other hazardous agents at the scene. They are investigating the cause.
