Fans from UK, Morehead State excited about game tonight

Kickoff for the UK season is tonight at 6:30 and fans of both teams are excited.

Morehead fans get to see their team play at Rupp Arena and UK fans get to see their team play a quality opponent.

When Coach Calipari took the job of head coach at UK he stepped into some big expectations but he also reinvigorated the Kentucky fan base.

And now that game day is here the only people more excited than UK fans are the players.

The Eagles won't have to face point guard John Wall.

He's sitting out tonight because of an eligibility issue with the NCAA.

But they will still have to deal with Patrick Patterson and one of the most talented UK teams we've seen in years.
