Big Blue Madness will tips off tonight. It’s the first time Solid Blue fans will have the chance to see this year’s team.

Alex Risen and Aaron Adelson will be coming to you live at 5 and 6 from Rupp Arena. And of course we will have all the highlights: dancing, lights, music and fan reaction, for you at 11 p.m.

Big Blue Madness will be more interactive than ever this year.

Fans attending the event Friday night are encouraged to download the FREE Wham City Lights app in the App Store or Android marketplace. During the event, video screens will prompt fans to open the app and participate in the crowd stunt.

Doors for Big Blue Madness open at 6 p.m. ET and the event will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The event will be televised on a delayed basis on UK IMG Sports Network affiliates in Bowling Green (WBKO-FOX, 9:00 p.m. CT) and Evansville, Ind. (WTVW-TV, 12:30 a.m. CT).
