COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M was fined $100,000 after fans stormed the field following Saturday’s upset of No. 1 Alabama.
Fans then rushed the field to celebrate, violating the Southeastern Conference’s “access to competition area policy.”
According to the policy, "access to competition areas shall be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officials, support personnel and properly-credentialed individuals at all times.”
The SEC said the policy is for the safety of both players and fans.
The money will be deposited into the SEC Post-Graduate Scholarship Fund.
If it happens a third time, the SEC could fine Texas A&M up to $250,000.
