LSU was fined $5,000 by the SEC for the fans rushing the field.
Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports
LSU athletic director Joe Alleva released the following statement regarding fans rushing the field after Tigers victory over Ole Miss on Saturday night. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

“Regarding the game, Tiger Stadium was as electric and passionate as it’s ever been, and on behalf of Coach Miles, our players, and the entire football staff, I want to thank our fans for their incredible support. Our stadium is a game-changer, and we sincerely appreciate the way our fans can impact the outcome with their energy.

“Having said that, I encourage everyone to celebrate great LSU victories within the seating areas of the stadium, and not on the field. LSU represents the achievement of victory with dignity, and we do not want to sacrifice safety or sportsmanship. We would never endorse the ‘storming of the field’ by our fans – it is a violation of the protocol established by the Southeastern Conference, and serious injuries have occurred at the venues of our member institutions. It is our sincere responsibility to maintain a safe and secure environment for everyone, and we must adhere to the principles set forth by the SEC.
