SEC takes strong stance against storming the field
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The Southeastern Conference wants tremendous competition.
It also wants teams from both schools to have a safe experience after playing in perhaps the most frenzied arenas in college football.
Wild celebrations after No. 3 Tennessee’s landmark home win over No. 6 Alabama and No. 18 LSU’s victory over 15th-ranked Mississippi turned into hefty fines for both winning schools for violating the SEC’s Access to Competition Area.
Tennessee was fined $100,000 and LSU was docked $250,000.
The SEC has an increasing scale on fines with additional violations triggering bigger penalties.
