Blue-White Football Game Format Announced

For the second-consecutive year, the Kentucky Wildcats will play a regular-game format for Saturday's Blue/White Game.

The game will feature the first team (White) vs. the second team (Blue). The Blue team will be staked to a 14-0 lead at the beginning of the game.

Last year, the format produced an exciting Blue/White Game. The Blue team extended its lead to 28-7 before the White squad posted a furious rally to tie the game at 28. The Blues won, 31-28, with a 38-yard field goal by Joe Mansour in the final minute of the game.

The Blue/White Game begins at 6 p.m. at Commonwealth Stadium.

- Admission and parking are free on a first-come, first-served basis. (If you've never gotten to sit on the 50-yard line, here's your chance!)

- The Red, Blue and Green parking lots open at 8 a.m. and fans are invited to tailgate.

- Stadium gates, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11 open at 4:30 p.m.

- Seating will be available in the north, west and south lower sections of the stadium.

Free Posters and Roster Cards to be Given Away

With the Blue/White Game being the first public football event since the conclusion of the 2011 season, UK Athletics has commemorated the season-ending victory over Tennessee - and the excitement of Commonwealth Stadium - with a special edition poster.

The poster features the celebration after UK's 10-7 win, including quarterback Matt Roark being carried off the field by jubilant fans. Quantities are limited and the posters will be given away first-come, first-served at the stadium gates.
