UK fans are everywhere, and some argue Kentucky's biggest fans are right here in the mountains of eastern Kentucky.

It's the game Big Blue Nation has been waiting and hoping for all season and just about every True Blue Fan is confident UK will snatch the victory!

"I'm 100 percent sure. This is the best team I believe Kentucky's had," said Ronnie Sawyers, a UK fan in London.

Restaurants, fans, and stores are gearing up for what could be the eighth biggest night for UK fans.

"We've got enough in here tonight to handle any crowd that comes in here tonight. We've double and triple stocked everything to make sure we're ready to go," said Scott Smith, the owner of Shiloh Roadhouse in London.

Some are planning on having their own parties cheering on the Cats from their living rooms.

"We're going to have fun, but we're not going to burn our couches though," said Andi Sutton, a UK fan in London.

Some are grilling out, and these wildcats are not cooking burgers rather some "Seasoned Jayhawk."

"UK fans thought it was funny. I figured today's the big day going for eight. So let's see what we can do," said Chris Lang, the assistant meat manager at Kroger in London.

Cats fans are out for the kill not accepting anyone else in the Big Blue Nation. A Louisville fan figured that out the hard way.

"Sorry I burned your shirt. I'll buy you a UK National Champions shirt and you can wear it tomorrow," said Sawyers.

People are sporting their Kentucky blue getting ready for the game of their lives.

The game will be on WYMT starting at 9:23 tonight.
