LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Students will have to change the way the have fun at this weekend's UK football game.
UK President Eli Capiluoto sent out an email to students on Thursday morning notifying them of changes to rules for tailgating on Cooper Drive.
The changes come after unruly behavior led to a number of citations during the last home game against Western Kentucky University two weeks ago.
In an email to students, Capilouto announced he following changes that will apply to tailgates taking place during this weekend's game against South Carolina.
There will be an increased police, athletics and student affairs presence in the areas that were negatively impacted two weeks ago. This includes the non-reserved tailgate space along Cooper Drive between Sports Center Drive and University Drive.
No alcohol will be allowed in that area. Police and state alcohol beverage control officials will be citing people who serve or use alcohol in that area.
No DJs or bands will be allowed to set up in this area as well.
Individuals or student organizations that promote drinking or that utilize DJs and bands in this area will be subject to disciplinary actions by the Dean of Students Office that could, ultimately, impact their organizational status.
In his email, Capilouto says "We want people to attend games. We want all of you to tailgate and enjoy each other's company in a responsible fashion. But we will not allow actions and behaviors that threaten the safety of our students, our fans or of officials who are present to protect everyone."
