UK and Virginia Tech get into pregame scuffle; punch thrown by Lynn Bowden

It’s going to be chippy out there today

NCAA Football: Louisville at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

This week has been full of trash talk between the Kentucky Wildcats and Virginia Tech Hokies.

Now we still have more than an hour until kickoff, and we are already seeing tempers run high during the warmups.

Hayden Hooper delivered the news on Twitter when the scrum broke out.

Dick Gabriel of Big Blue Insider confirmed the fight and said a Virginia Tech player threw a punch at Lynn Bowden.

However, Bowden threw a punch of his own:

Gabriel also said, “Eyewitness tells me a Tech player threw a roundhouse punch at a KY assistant coach but missed, was pulled away by a Tech assistant,” which shows just how much bad blood there is now between both sides.

We also have some video of the aftermath.

You won't want to miss this one.
