GA Band Rule?


Was watching a game yesterday between Saraland, AL & Heard Co, GA.  At one point, the WH dropped a flag & announced "Unsportsmanlike Conduct- Band".

What's the Georgia rule on this?  And who is the USC charged to?

Didn't see the game so can't comment. But I'll copy & paste what the manual says:

b.   Bands are not to play during live-ball situations. NOTE: this includes the situation in which there is no timeout and the teams are in the huddle. If a team claims that band noise is interfering with communication, the Referee shall give a warning to one or both head coaches who will instruct the band(s) to stop playing. 
i.   If there is a second offense by a warned school's band, an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty will be imposed against the same schoolís team (not the teamís head coach). 
ii.   The Referee will always wait for a complaint before issuing a warning.
