LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It didn't take long after the game ended before a crowd started forming at the Blue Grass Airport, to welcome the team home.
Even Coach Cal stopped to say thank you for the support as fans crowded the sides of the road nearest the runway. Fans also cheered on the players as their plane arrived.
"We just beat Witchita state. They ain't undefeated anymore, they' ain't undefeated anymore," said one UK fan waiting at the airport. "C-A-T-S CATS CATS CATS!"
Fans at the airport say talking to Coach Cal made it well worth the wait.
