Auburn fans just can’t stop rushing the field, and it’s starting to cost the school some major money.
On Tuesday, the SEC slapped Auburn with a $250,000 fine after fans rushed the field Saturday to celebrate the Tigers’ victory over Alabama in the Iron Bowl.
The fine was especially steep because it’s the third time since 2013 Auburn fans have rushed the field after a win over the Crimson Tide.
Should the school be fined just because fans want to celebrate? Is it really dangerous to rush the field as long as fans aren’t doing anything crazy like tearing down goalposts?
