The Ole Miss football team has been fined $100,000 for not following the SEC's COVID-19 protocols, school officials confirmed to the Clarion (Mississippi) Ledger.
Sports Illustrated first reported that the fine will be taken in the form of a reduction in conference revenue. Tennessee and Texas A&M also were hit with fines, according to SI.
Volunteers coach Jeremy Pruitt drew attention during Tennessee's 44-21 loss at Georgia for wearing a gaiter that covered every part of his face except his mouth and nose.
Sports Illustrated reported the fines are largely based on "sideline mask-wearing behavior from coaches, support staff members, strength staffers, etc."
