It was announced on Monday that Arkansas will be fined by the SEC for a violation of the league's access to competition area policy due to fans rushing to field after the Razorback victory over LSU on Saturday. Per

Arkansas will incur a fine of $25,000 because it is its second offense since the league's access to competition area policy went into effect on December 1, 2004. Arkansas was also fined for a violation associated with a men's basketball game against Florida in 2006.

The policy states that "access to competition areas shall be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officials, support personnel and properly-credentialed individuals at all times. For the safety of participants and spectators alike, at no time before, during or after a contest shall spectators be permitted to enter the competition area. It is the responsibility of each member institution to implement procedures to ensure compliance with this policy."
