LEXINGTON, Ky. – Junior Lones Seiber and redshirt freshman Ryan Tydlacka will share the extra point and field goal duties during the game vs. Western Kentucky University, Coach Rich Brooks announced following Thursday’s practice.
Seiber, who has been the team’s primary placekicker since his freshman season, will continue to kick extra points. Tydlacka will handle field goals. Seiber (pronounced SEE-ber) has made 5-of-10 field goals this season and has connected on all 10 of his extra point tries. Tydlacka (pronounced tid-LOTCH-kah) has been the “pooch” punter in the first three games but has not attempted a placekick in a game.
Brooks noted that the team has had a much better week of preparation for WKU than the Wildcats did prior to the Middle Tennessee game, when the Wildcats did not have a good week of practice.
Game is Sold Out: The UK-WKU game is now a sellout. The Wildcats (3-0) play host to the Hilltoppers (2-2) on Saturday at 7 p.m. Fans without tickets can watch the game live in Lexington on WKYT and in Bowling Green on WBKO. Fans across the nation, both inside and outside Kentucky (no blackouts), may purchase the game live via ESPN GamePlan.
