WATCH: Nick Saban Security Detail Slams Fan During Wild Postgame Scene
There was no shortage of hard-hitting in Texas A&M’s wild, upset victory over Alabama on Saturday night. However, one of the most headline-grabbing hits took place after the game.
As A&M fans stormed the field to celebrate their team’s 41-38 victory over the #1 team in the land, the security detail for Alabama coach Nick Saban grabbed ahold of the coach and did their best to clear a path for the coach to get him into the tunnel. But, unfortunately, one A&M fan found herself caught between the coach and the tunnel and got trucked.
About 45 seconds into this video shared by Dee Jackson of CBS 42 in Birmingham, a female fan appears to take a forearm from Saban’s escort of Alabama and A&M law enforcement officers.

Coach Saban did get off the field safely. The condition of the fan, however, is unknown.

“These confrontations are the reason the SEC imposes fines for fans rushing the field,” AL.com reported. “The penalties start at $50,000 and run all the way to $250,000 if it happens three or more times at the same school.
“This will be a second offense for A&M since fans rushed the field after an overtime win over LSU in 2018. The fine for this one would be $100,000.”
Pretty sure A&M will consider that fine money well spent.
