We've only seen this in the Daily Tar Heel.

Well here's a story we didn't see in the local media: according to the Daily Tar Heel, there was a riot by students who were denied entry to the Kentucky game. Apparently someone decided to randomize ticket assignments, specifically to keep people from camping out. Thousand lined up and waited in the rain and didn't appreciate being turned away. Student Eric Reese summed it up beautifully, if perhaps a bit uninentionally: "I feel just the communication of how everything was organized was the worst I’ve seen at any event I’ve attended in my entire life, and I’ve attended some terrible events."

Here's some DTH video of students storming the gate. If this is it, it wasn't much of a riot.
