UK Fans Excited About Liberty Bowl

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.
