LSU fined $100K for celebration after beating Georgia

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.
