LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– Coach John Calipari has called out to BBN to show up to support the Cats while ESPN’s College Game Day is in town.

The show will film Saturday morning live at Rupp Arena.  Admission will be free and fans are encouraged to attend the event. Seats for the show will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Gates will open at 9 a.m. with the live show starting at 11 a.m. Other segments from the crew for other ESPN shows will be taped prior to 11.

“Let’s show the nation why nobody does it better than we do. I’ll be down after our shootaround to check out the show. And I hear there’s going to be free ice cream,” Cal said in a Tweet.

All students attending ESPN College Gameday and/or the Kansas-Kentucky game may begin lining up at the Rupp Arena student gate no earlier than 5 a.m. Saturday. Rupp Arena staff will coordinate with students in line to determine their intent to attend the 6 p.m. game vs. Kansas.
