The ESPN College Gameday atmosphere had Rupp Arena rocking from dawn Saturday until, well almost Sunday.
A rowdy, raucous bunch kept Kentucky in the game through the tough early moments, and through the hair-pulling mistakes late in regulation.
ESPNs Jay Bilas said on Saturday the crowd doesn't win games for the home team.

And while most might agree with those claims, it certainly seemed the Rupp faithful had a much greater role to play last night.
Cal agrees. More from him thanking the Solid Blue fans in the video.
