In Lexington, Police said they were ready for anything and that was a good thing.

It was a flashback to Friday but this time Kentucky is going to the Final Four.

Fans once again rushed the streets in celebration of UK’s win.

Police didn’t think it would happen since the rivalry Sunday wasn’t as strong but police said they were ready.

Just seconds after the game, people pour onto Limestone.

Only police and police cars lined the streets since parking restrictions were still in place but the crowd didn’t seem rowdy.  Beer cans were thrown in the air but it was mostly high fives and fans shouting C-A-T-S! C-A-T-S! C-A-T-S!

A few blocks away, State Street once again lived up to its reputation with crowds and fires but this time couches seemed safe.

Firefighters told ABC 36 there were around 20 small fires, only one of them being a couch that was quickly put out and they said fortunately they had no medical calls.

Fans ABC 36 talked with during the game said win or lose; they were going to rush the streets.

Similar to Friday, police and firefighters seem to be standing by watching and letting people celebrate but they looked ready to step in if needed.
