LEXINGTON, Ky. – University of Kentucky football fans have generated a high level of excitement around the 2014 Blue/White Spring Game and UK's event management staff wants to ensure fans are equipped with necessary information prior to game day. The spring game, presented by American Campus Communities, will be on Saturday, April 26 with kickoff set for 3:30 p.m. ET at Commonwealth Stadium.
UK Athletics has created a one-stop website at www.ukathletics.com/fbgameday to answer all questions regarding parking, traffic, tickets, seating and more. Fans are asked to visit the website before game day, to answer any questions and enhance their spring game experience.
