On Monday the Big 12 Conference announced a fine and public reprimand of Texas Tech for the actions of fans who stormed the field following Saturday's game in Lubbock.

The Red Raiders defeated the Longhorns 37-34 in overtime at Jones AT&T Stadium, their first home win against Texas in over a decade and the first over the 'Horns for new head coach Joey McGuire.

Videos surfaced following the game of fans storming the field, with one shoving Texas senior EDGE rusher Ovie Oghoufo in the back before running off.

Texas Tech will be fined $50,000 for the incident.

STATEMENT FROM BIG COMMISSIONER BRETT YORMARK

“We have a duty to provide a safe game environment. The Texas Tech Department of Athletics has a written event management policy that, while well thought out, was unsuccessful in ensuring the safety and security of all visiting team student-athletes, officials, coaches and staff. There is zero tolerance for any act that compromises the safety of game participants, and it is of utmost importance that home game management provide adequate security measures for our student-athletes, coaches, game officials and spectators.”
