UK fans gather to watch final football game of the season

LEXINGTON, Ky (WKYT) - The packed Buffalo Wild Wings on Todds Road was the setting many Kentucky fans chose to ride out the last football game of the season.

"I bleed blue, no other color, just blue," said one fan.

Today that blue blood was spilled again, as these fans had to sit through another demoralizing loss.

"Typical for this season, typical for what we've been living through for the last six months," said UK fan Andrew Long.

Adding insult to injury the crowd had almost as many fans sporting red. They were cheering on an undefeated Ohio State team that, because of NCAA sanctions, isn't going to a bowl game either.

With everything UK fans have been through this season the one thing these supporters said they could get excited about was changes during the off-season.

"It's bittersweet. Good to get the new coach coming in, at the same time Joker's a good guy," Long said.

These fans say the next leader of the UK football program will have their support, and their hopes of beating Tennessee next year.
