Some tailgaters won't be imbibing before the University of Kentucky's football game against South Carolina this weekend.
UK President Eli Capilouto has imposed an alcohol ban for non-reserved tailgating spots near the stadium in Lexington.
The ban also applies to DJs and bands, and comes after fights broke out before and after Kentucky's loss to Western Kentucky.
Capilouto said in a campus email Thursday that police will bolster their presence in the non-reserved tailgate area along Cooper Drive between Sports Center Drive and University Drive.
His email encourages tailgating but in a "responsible fashion."
It's not the first time UK has dealt with unruly fan behavior. The school's celebration of its national basketball championship this past spring was marred by numerous small fires and gunfire that wounded one man.
