SEC fines Tennessee $100,000 after fans storm field after Alabama loss
Following Saturday’s 52-49 victory against Alabama on College Football, the University of Tennessee definitely falls under the group of institutions willing to willingly pay a $100,000 fine.
The Neyland Stadium crowd erupted onto the field in jubilation as soon as Chase McGrath’s game-winning field goal knuckled past the crossbar with seconds left in regulation. The party-like atmosphere was unrivaled in this season, and there were plenty of cigars to go around. Fans even rode the goalposts as they were taken out of the stadium.
The only drawback is that the party had a price.
According to Brett McMurphy of Action Network, the SEC penalized Tennessee $100,000 because spectators flooded the field. A conference rule was established in an effort to stop potentially disastrous situations like the one that occurred on Saturday.
OKBET Football News : Randy Boyd, the president of Tennessee, didn’t seem to mind:
The Volunteers’ victory, possibly their largest since winning the national title in 1998, catapulted them to No. 3 in the Associated Press Top 25 and put them squarely in the NCAA Playoff conversation.
They will have quite the party to live up to if it maintains the momentum all the way to a national championship.
