Are you a Kentucky fan looking for something to do this Saturday? Look no further than your beloved university.
The highlight of “Big Blue Weekend” is the Spring Football game, the first under the lights and the first under head coach Mark Stoops. Excitement is at an all time high and over 42,000 fans are expected at the event, a huge jump from about 4,500 last season.
How should you dress for the day and what other events are happening? Here is a weather forecast and a rundown of activities:
Weather: Partly cloudy with a high near 60 and a low around 40., 0% chance of rain.
What to Wear: My suggestion is bring a hoody. While it will be quite warm while you tailgate, it will be chilly in Commonwealth Stadium. Jeans, a UK t-shirt and a UK hoody to slip on during the game should be perfect attire.
What Else is Going On: The brand new softball complex will have it’s grand opening at 11:30 AM. After that, the softball team will take on number 3 Florida at 1 PM.
The baseball team will face Tennessee at Cliff Hagan Stadium at 2 PM.
Men’s soccer takes on Lipscomb at 5 PM.
The football team will to a ‘Cat Walk at 5:15 PM at Gate One in front of the Stadium.
The blue/white game will commence at 7 PM.
BBN has been waiting for a football event like this for as long as I can remember. It should be a beautiful day and a great night for football. Come out and supports the team and the coaching staff.
See ya Saturday.
