Kentucky fans light things on fire after loss to Wisconsin (VIDEO)

The Kentucky Wildcats had won 38 straight games this season heading into Saturday’s Final Four matchup with the Wisconsin Badgers. Big Blue Nation expected their team to take care of business and advance to Monday’s national championship game.

But the Badgers had other plans. They played a sound game from start to finish and defeated the Wildcats, 71-64.

Kentucky fans weren’t happy about it, so they took to the streets and began lighting things on fire.

Fans were chanting “F— Wisconsin” as well as they gathered in the streets. It’s a shame that they couldn’t deal with the loss without starting fires in Lexington.
