The fine comes after the Big Ten Conference “thoroughly reviewed” a postgame brawl after the rivalry game.

Additionally, the conference found the University of Michigan did not meet the standards of the Big Ten Conference Football Game Management Manual policy, which requires the host team to provide adequate protection for personnel of both home and visiting teams when entering and leaving playing arenas. The University of Michigan will receive a public reprimand.

The conference determined that MSU players Itayvion “Tank” Brown, Angelo Grose, Justin White, Jacoby Windmon, Brandon Wright, and Zion Young have served a “sufficient suspension” and will be allowed to play again.
