Stadium ejection numbers low for Kentucky game

There were no student ejections and only one non-student ejection from the Gators football game against the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday, according to University of Kentucky police Chief Joe Monroe.

"This [game's fans were] fairly well-behaved for the most part," Monroe said.

The number of ejections was low compared to the dozen people who were thrown out of Commonwealth stadium in Lexington, Ky., during the previous week's game.

Twenty-three people were ejected from the Gators game versus the University of Alabama at Birmingham on Sept. 10.

Another 89 people were ejected from the University of Tennessee game on Sept. 17.

Twenty-three of the 89 were ejected for standing on the bleachers.

Monroe said the low number of ejections may have been because many people left the stadium well before the game was over.

Monroe said most ejections are for violating the rule that alcohol isn't allowed in the stadium. Alcohol is not allowed in most SEC college football stadiums.
