Fans of the The University of Kentucky football team are excited the Big Blue are headed to the Liberty Bowl this year.
The Cats will be trying for a school record third-consecutive bowl victory in the Liberty Bowl against the East Carolina Pirates, the Conference USA champion.
Fans we spoke with say they were hoping for a better bowl selection, but they are glad that the Cats aren't going back to the Music City Bowl.
The game will be Friday, Jan. 2, at 5 p.m. in Memphis.
The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
