LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — The Southeastern Conference fined Kentucky $25,000 for violating league policy about keeping fans off the playing field following the Wildcats' 40-34 upset of 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."
