UK Fined $25,000 For Fans Rushing Field

The Southeastern Conference fined Kentucky
$25,000 on Monday for violating league policy about keeping fans
off the playing field following the Wildcats' 40-34 victory over
Louisville on Saturday.
SEC policy limits on-field access to "student-athletes,
coaches, officials, support personnel and properly credentialed
individuals."
It is the school's second violation of the policy since it was
adopted in 2004. Kentucky was fined last year when fans ran onto
the Commonwealth Stadium turf after the Wildcats defeated Georgia.
Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart said the school would
work to "ensure a safe environment for our players and fans to
celebrate future wins."
