Razorbacks fined $100,000 after fans rush the field
Unless you've been under a rock, you know the Razorbacks crushed Texas on Saturday.
Flashback: Arkansas fans could not contain their excitement and immediately ran onto the football field to celebrate.
What's happening: The Southeastern Conference fined the Razorbacks $100,000 on Monday for violating the league's policy that prohibits spectators on the playing field. The rule is meant to protect the safety of players and officials.
- Texas players were still on the field as fans rushed onto it, Whole Hog Sports reported.
Yes, but: The Razorbacks knew the consequences. In a video posted on their Twitter account, athletic director Hunter Yurachek can be seen telling Arkansas State Police fans will probably rush the field.
- Yurachek says he'd rather get fined instead of fans getting hurt if they're held back.
