Rupp Arena could be without air conditioning Saturday


UK student section during the University of Kentucky men’s basketball game vs. Mississippi State at Rupp Arena in 2014.


For those planning on attending the UK-LSU game tomorrow at Rupp Arena, make sure to dress for warmer temperatures. Rupp Areana’s HVAC system has experienced an electrical switch gear problem, which will limit its ability to properly flow air into the area. 

Despite the stadium’s A/C Unit being out, the game is still scheduled for a 2 p.m. tipoff. Fans attending should take notice in the precaution and dress accordingly.

The Rupp Arena staff is working hard to fix the problem before the game, but if the problem is not fixed by game time, there will be no pyrotechnics for the starting lineup introductions.
