LSU has been fined $100,000 after its fans stormed the field Saturday evening, celebrating the upset of No. 2 Georgia.
The Southeastern Conference announced the fine Monday morning.
This was LSU’s second violation since the “access to competition area policy” was enacted in 2004. The fans also went onto the field in 2014.
Any additional field-storming fines would be $250,000.
The conference said the money will be deposited into the SEC Post-Graduate Scholarship Fund.
The Tigers routed the Bulldogs 36-16, giving head coach Ed Orgeron the biggest win of his tenure with LSU.
With the loss, Georgia fell to No. 8 in the latest AP poll. LSU jumped to No. 5.
Georgia is off this week before playing Florida on Oct. 27 in Jacksonville. LSU faces Mississippi State on Saturday.
