Fridays to get blue, spirited

By Drew Teague

UK Football will be heading to Louisville soon for its big intrastate rivalry game Saturday, but UK Student Government wants to get the spirit going on Fridays.

According to a press release on Thursday, UK SGA is starting their “see blue. wear blue. EVERY FRIDAY” campaign, which they coincided with College Colors Day.

College Colors Day is in its fifth year, and has spread across the country, with UK hoping that the Big Blue Nation will show its pride and wear Kentucky blue this Friday for the rivalry game.

The athletic department is even pushing the event scheduled for all day tomorrow, asking all Wildcat fans to wear their Blue in support of their favorite team.

UK Athletics will host an event outside of the Student Center between noon and 1 p.m. to celebrate the day. Students will receive free hotdogs and soft drinks. They will also be able to buy this year’s edition of the Tradition’s tee shirt at a student discount rate of $15.
