Here we go again: Cats fined for fans' postgame celebration

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -The Southeastern Conference fined Kentucky $50,000 Monday for failing to prevent fans from rushing the field after the Wildcats' triple-overtime victory over top-ranked LSU.

It was the third violation, dating to last year for Kentucky, which was fined $5,000 for the celebration after a win last year against Georgia and $25,000 earlier this year after a victory over Louisville.

Under the SEC policy, ``access to competition areas shall be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officials, support personnel and properly credentialed individuals at all times.'' Universities are held responsible if spectators rush into the competition area.

Kentucky defeated LSU 43-37 Saturday - its first victory over a top-ranked team since 1964.
