LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – After the UK Football game on Saturday, the crowd made their way back out to the parking lot to celebrate the win.
Griffin Kaylor said overall it was a good day for the team, “First half was a little sloppy like I wasn’t having that much fun in the first half. Second half they picked it up and it was a lot of fun.”
There were tailgating tents lined up all around the parking lot with people enjoying food, drinks, and some shade.
Former UK student Lexie Dawson said the heat did take a toll on some people at the event, “It is a hot one today but we are having some fun out here at the KET lot. The game was great. We had to go in the third quarter because it was a little bit sweltering.”
Not only are people celebrating with tailgating but couch burning is a tradition.
“We, you know, love to burn a good couch here in Lexington. I haven’t lived here in a couple years but I hear it’s quite the phenomena,” Dawson said.
Although we didn’t see any couches burn after the game, fans were on fire for the first win of the season.
