Even though it's an NFL Sunday, Kentucky Basketball has found a way to draw a large spotlight.
Right now, that's being focused on one of the oldest venues in college basketball, as UK is showing off the new upgrades made at Rupp Arena to enhance the gameday atmosphere. That includes a brand new center-hung scoreboard to replace Big Bertha.
