SEC Fines Kentucky For Post-Game Celebration

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- The Southeastern Conference has fined Kentucky $50,000 for failing to prevent fans from rushing the field after the Wildcats' triple-overtime victory over top-ranked LSU.

It's the third violation for Kentucky dating back to last year.

The university was fined $5,000 for the celebration after a win last season against Georgia and $25,000 earlier this year after a victory over Louisville.

Kentucky defeated LSU 43-37 Saturday -- its first victory over a top-ranked team since 1964.
