Good morning, BBN. It is officially GameDay in Lexington and the whole ESPN basketball crew has converged upon Lexington, Kentucky. The ESPN tradition is making its first appearance in Rupp this year and of course the biggest crowd of the year is expected. Early estimates had the crowd expected around 17,000 but we will see if the BBN will fill up Rupp for the national audience. As you can see from the picture above, Rupp Arena is already a virtual sea of blue.
GameDay will air on ESPN-U from 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM and then on the main ESPN channel from 11:00 AM to noon. This is all in preparation of course for the big event, the basketball game tonight. Kentucky 18-8 (9-4) will host the Missouri Tigers 19-7 (8-5) in a game which is crucial to both teams SEC and NCAA chances. So join along as we try to bring you the sights, sounds, and flavor of ESPN’s GameDay.
