Texas A&M fined $100,000 for fans storming the field
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The Southeastern Conference announced Monday that it was fining Texas A&M University $100,000. The fine is a result of Aggie fans rushing the field after Seth Small made a game-winning field goal to upset Alabama Saturday night at Kyle Field.
This is the university’s second offense, causing the cost of the fine to go up. The first offense happened in 2018 when Texas A&M beat LSU in seven overtimes. At the time, the school was fined $50,000 and was warned that future offenses would double the fine.
According to conference policy, another field storming could result in a fine of $250,000.
The policy was originally put in place in 2004. The fines go to the SEC Post-Graduate Scholarship Fund.
