SEC fines Kentucky $250,000 for fans rushing Kroger Field after Wildcats beat Florida

A crowd of 61,632 watched unbeaten Kentucky earn its first home victory over Florida since 1986.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Southeastern Conference has fined Kentucky $250,000 for violating its access to competition area policy after fans rushed the field at the end of the Wildcats’ 20-13 victory over then-No. 10 Florida. 

The school was fined for a third policy offense. Its previous violation and fine occurred following a game against Mississippi State in 2018. 

A crowd of 61,632 watched unbeaten Kentucky earn its first home victory over Florida since 1986 and first over a Top-10 opponent since 2010.

The Wildcats did it despite being outgained 382-211, but got a 41-yard TD pass from Will Levis to Wan’Dale Robinson and 99 yards rushing on 19 carries from Rodriguez.

A slew of false starts comprised many of Florida’s 15 penalties for 115 yards. Jones completed 23 of 31 passes for 203 yards, but the Gators were held way below their average of nearly 541 yards that ranked ninth coming in.

Kentucky hosts LSU on Saturday.
