(WHAS11) -- The University of Kentucky has lifted the alcohol ban for certain tailgating areas for Saturday's home game against Mississippi State.
UK President Eli Capilouto imposed the ban for last week's game against South Carolina after several fights broke out during tailgating before the Western Kentucky game.
On Friday Capilouto sent an e-mail to staff and students, announcing the ban has been lifted but the university will take other steps to secure a safe environment.
