AUBURN, Ala. – Auburn University is facing a big fine for fans running onto the field after the team’s win over Alabama in the Iron Bowl.
The Southeastern Conference states the university is facing a $250,000 for its fourth violation of the SEC policy that prohibits postgame fan access to the competition area, WHNT’s sister station WRBL reported.
Auburn defeated Alabama in a wild Iron Bowl Saturday night, handing Alabama its first two-loss regular season since 2010.
The fine policy, adopted in 2004, has penalties ranging from $50,000 for a first offense to fines of up to $100,000 for a second offense. Third and subsequent offenses have penalties up to $250,000.
The money from the fine will be deposited into the SEC Post-Graduate Scholarship Fund.
