The Big Blue nation has come through yet again, as today, Kentucky has sold out their 9,000-ticket allotment for their Citrus Bowl matchup with the Penn State Nittany Lions.
We are excited @UKFootball will have the kind of fan support they deserve at the @CitrusBowl. The unmatched passion of the best fans in America continues to make Kentucky an appealing choice for any bowl. We look forward to ringing in the New Year with the #BBN in Orlando! https://t.co/odmczj2id0— Mitch Barnhart (@UKMitchBarnhart) December 18, 2018
Kentucky has now sold out their ticket allotment for their bowl games in each of the last three seasons with the Taxslayer Bowl against Georgia Tech in 2016 and the Music City Bowl against Northwestern a year ago.
For the first time of the three years, Kentucky will look to provide fans who make the trip a victory to celebrate.
For Kentucky fans, there’s a lot of reason to make the trip.
One is the location, as who wouldn’t want to spend new year’s in the Orlando sun, go to Disney and watch New Year’s Eve fireworks and watch the Cats without the cold?
The second is it will be the last time some of the school’s most celebrated players ever wear the Kentucky uniform.
Josh Allen, Benny Snell, C.J. Conrad, Bunchy Stallings and Mike Edwards, just to name a few, will play in their final collegiate games, and the game provides fans one last chance to watch them play for their Wildcats.
