LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- University of Kentucky officials say a temporary ban on alcohol, DJ's, and bands in an area near Commonwealth Stadium, produced mostly quiet and no problems.

Lexington Police Cmdr. Thomas Curtsinger told the Lexington Herald-Leader two large, grassy fields were vacant Saturday where hundreds of students usually hold pre-game parties. Only a few groups gathered soberly under tents along the roadside for cookouts and games, with plenty of elbow room between them.

University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto ordered a temporary ban on alcohol, DJ's, and bands in the area for the home football game against South Carolina.

Capilouto said the move was prompted by fighting Sept. 15 when Kentucky played Western Kentucky.

The Wildcats lost to the Gamecocks 38-17. UK lost to WKU 32-31 in overtime.
