Drinking banned for some UK tailgaters

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- When some UK fans tailgate before this weekend's football game, drinking won't be a part of the game plan.

UK President Eli Capilouto has imposed an alcohol ban for non-reserved tailgating spots near Commonwealth Stadium.  The ban comes after fights broke out before and after Kentucky's loss to Western Kentucky.

You can also expect to see more police on patrols in the non-tailgate area along Cooper Drive between Sports Center and University Drives.

Capilouto says he encourages tailgating, but in a responsible fashion.
