There will be additional members of city, state and university police on patrol in the neighborhoods around the stadium before and after the game to look for parking violators and unruly behavior.
Several other security measures have also been adopted after residents complained about fan conduct following Kentucky's victory over Louisville earlier this season.
The university has opened extra parking areas, the city has given ``no parking'' signs to local residents and repainted yellow no-parking areas around the stadium so they are easily visible.
``We all want to celebrate the success of our winning football team, but we want to do it in a way that is safe for everyone and respects our neighborhoods,'' said Lexington mayor Jim Newberry.
The measures will remain in place for the remainder of Kentucky home games this season.
