ESPN GameDay At UK

More Video...

For the first time ever, ESPN GameDay has come to Lexington for UK football.

Kentucky takes on defending National Champion Florida at Commonwealth on Saturday.

Construction of the GameDay set here on campus began Thursday morning using the W.T. Young Library for a backdrop.

GameDay requires a big investment from ESPN. They spent all day Thursday building the stage and loading in equipment. Friday, they were back to set up their cameras.

UK officials say they expect close to 15,000 fans to turn out for the show.

Their biggest crowd was four years ago, and officials are hoping they get to break the record.

The GameDay show begins at ten o'clock Saturday morning.

The game can be seen right here on WKYT, beginning at 3:30.

    Best sign that was shown by ESPN Gameday while broadcasting from Lexington: "Hey Mom, I found the Library" LOL!

    Isn't it funny that just about the only time ESPN comes to Lex to broadcast a game are the games that we lose?

    Hey Spike, let me put this in a way you probably just might understand...TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK BUDDY. WE GET TIRED OF IT. IF YOU WANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY, YOU CAN'T ALWAYS TYPE WITH CAPS LOCK ON. And by the way, I hope you really aren't a college graduate because if so, you aren't making a good case for those who are educated.
