As we await the beginning of real college football (aka SEC play), each school has been announcing attendance regulations for home games. On Saturday, news broke that the University of Kentucky plans to allow 20% attendance in the stands and 50% attendance in suites for the 2020 season.

That lines up with what many other schools have planned, although some SEC schools are not limiting capacity in suites. Regardless of comparisons, most UK fans will be thrilled to know that Kroger Field will not be completely empty this fall.

Tweet of the Day

After much waiting and debate, we now know that the Kentucky Wildcats will be supported by fans in the stands this fall.
