LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Seconds after the final whistle from Kroger Field, hundreds of UK students and fans stormed State Street.

Celebrating a big win on the street has become a tradition dating back to at least 2012 when UK won the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.

There were some fires set, including a bed frame.

The last time UK beat Florida, in 2018, fans also converged on the street. Besides the usual small fires and cheers, a group also overturned a car on the street.
