Arkansas hit with hefty fine from SEC for rushing the field after upset win over Texas
Texas is…. not back again; they showed the college football world why it was premature to rank them in AP Top-25.
The 15th ranked Longhorns traveled up to Fayetteville, AR. Saturday night looking for a win over the unranked Razorbacks.
The Razorbacks dominated the Longhorns in a 41-20 victory welcoming Texas to their new conference. This helped the Razorbacks enter this weeks’ AP Top-25 Poll at No. 20. Texas fell out of the rankings.
The Razorbacks’ faithful stormed the field after the final whistle for beating an AP Top-25 opponent.
Arkansas was fined 100,000 dollars by the SEC for storming onto the field after the game.

That is a standing operating procedure for the SEC if any of their 14 schools storm the field after a game.
The Razorbacks this season will still face 5 AP Top-25 opponents this season , including a stint of 4 in a row.
The Longhorns face only 2 AP Top-25 opponents for the rest of the year.
This week the No.20 Arkansas Razorbacks take on Georgia Southern at 4:00 ET on the SEC Network.
The Longhorns face in-state school Rice at 8:00 ET on the Longhorn Network.
