Solid Blue fans living on State Street are still reeling after the events that unfolded in front of their homes Saturday night following UK's win in the Final Four.

Those fans only had look out their windows to see cars flipped over and on fire, along with burning couches.

Lexington Police say more than 150 officers were called in to try to calm the rioters. They 27 minor arrests were made, all minor offenses. Police also say nothing happened Saturday night that was not anticipated prior to the game, and that police were very pleased with how the situation was handled.

Many Solid Blue fans are expecting an even large scene downtown on Monday if UK was to win their eight national championship.
