A tradition unlike any other returns for another season with tonight’s Big Blue Madness. Both the Kentucky Wildcats men’s and women’s basketball teams will partake in the annual tipoff to their seasons.
Big Blue Madness will feature introductions of both teams and include contests, practice drills, videos, and more. This will be the 18th year BBM has been held at Rupp Arena.
Festivities are set to start at 7 pm ET, with tonight’s event televised via the SEC Network.
On Thursday, the Southeastern Conference released the 2023 SEC Football Legends class.
Representing Kentucky is former linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who played his final season for the Wildcats in 2007.

After a solid career at Kentucky, Woodyard went on to the NFL, where he went undrafted and signed with the Denver Broncos as a free agent. After five seasons with the Broncos, he went on to play with the Tennessee Titans for another five seasons.
Being recognized as a member of the 2023 class is a well-deserved honor. Congrats, Wood!
