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.

I asked a police officer what this was. He said just a bunch of stuff. I’ve seen two fires so far. This one I saw earlier, but of course has since been put out. pic.twitter.com/D5JkhMIkkl— Austin Pollack (@AustinPollackTV) October 3, 2021
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.
