Professor gets Rupp Arena singing before UK, UofL game


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It takes place before every American sporting event, but it doesn't always go like this one.

When a UK professor sang the National Anthem before the UK versus UofL game last weekend, he managed to turn it into something pretty special.

"It's always dicey because you never know if they're going to sing or stand there looking at you," explained Dr. Everett McCorvey, Director of the UK Opera Theatre.

Dr. McCorvey has sung the anthem at Rupp Arena numerous times in his more than two decades with the university.

He hopes his rendition helped rile up the crowd before the big game.
