Rupp Arena was filled with 15,000 fans Saturday morning as ESPN's College Gameday rolled into town.
The Big Blue Nation danced, screamed and cheered on national TV, showing everyone just how faithful they are.
Whoever said UK fans had given up on their Wildcats certainly didn't consult the Big Blue Nation. Fans poured into Rupp Arena for the gameday experience, many of them woke up in the early hours of the morning just to get a good seat.
"I had to wake up at 4:30 this morning hit the road and get down here by about 7:30 to get my seat in front of the eruption zone," says Jason Johnson.
"We got up about 6:00 this morning, fixed some pancakes and bacon for breakfast did some stretches, its awesome," says Alex Hartgrove.
" I think we can win. I'm hoping Missouri will have big heads where they just beat Florida and we will stick it where it hurts," says fan Kayla Lawler.
And Timothy Goss says, "We are not giving up. Willie Cauley stein is dropping 25 tonight and we are wining this and we are going to the NCAA tourney!"
