Kentucky fans decided to celebrate their upset win over Florida in creative and destructive ways in the streets of Lexington on Saturday night.
Mark Stoops has turned Kentucky football from a doormat to a perennial bowl team to now a power in the SEC East.
People may not have been ready to admit that coming into the season, but the Wildcats made it clear they should be taken seriously on Saturday by upseting the No. 12 Florida Gators.
Kentucky football fans might not even be true believers yet because they acted like the victory wasn’t something they should expect week to week.
They literally flipped cars and burned couches on the streets.

Listen, fans celebrating in the streets can be great. Just look at how Appalachian State fans reacted after they upset Texas A&M.
That doesn’t mean that car deserved to be flipped or that couch or anything else deserved to be set on fire.
The phrase “act like you’ve been there before” probably applies in this situation.
Hopefully, UK fans figure out that they can and will continue to go toe-to-toe with the power programs in the SEC. Celebrate like crazy, but leave fires out of it.
The Wildcats dropped the Gators, 26-16. They scored the final 19 points of the game, including a 65-yard pick six from Keidron Smith, to do it.
Now with a 2-0 record, they’ll look to add a couple more to the tally with games against Youngstown State and Northern Illinois in the coming weeks before facing off with Ole Miss in their next big test on the road.
