SEC fines Ole Miss, Kentucky after fans rush field

(mgn) (mgn)

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The Southeastern Conference has fined Mississippi and Kentucky after their fans stormed the field to celebrate victories.

The SEC fined Ole Miss $50,000 on Sunday because the school also was cited for similar violations in 2012 and 2013. Rebels fans rushed the field after a 23-17 victory over Alabama on Saturday.

Kentucky drew a $25,000 penalty for the celebration of a 45-38 upset of South Carolina. Kentucky also was penalized in 2006 and 2007, but drew a smaller fine because its last offense was more than three years ago.

SEC policy restricts access to areas of competition to coaches, athletes, officials support personnel and others with proper credentials.

Commissioner Mike Slive has discretion to impose fines for violations in all SEC sports. Penalties start at $5,000 for a first offense.
