I’m sure you all saw the aftermath of Kentucky’s close game against Notre Dame Saturday night and the celebration that took place on State Street. A tradition of only the past few years, students come in droves to State Street following Kentucky’s closest victories in the NCAA Tournament the closer they get to the Championship game. So to get you a little more excited for this Saturday’s game against the Wisconsin Badgers, I’ve hand selected five pictures that were geo-tagged at State Street from this past Saturday. You’re welcome.

A simple kind of man is sometimes just what you need when stress levels are as high as they were Saturday in preparation for Kentucky vs. Notre Dame. Kudos, my man.

Just like the object in flames in this picture, Kentucky has been on fire all season long and is on its way to glory with the support of the BBN backing them all the way to #9.

Banners look even better in the gleam of State Street excitement! This one particularly has a nice, classic ring to it that hopefully won’t fade with the increasing number of celebratory fires that will ignite this weekend.

When you get the police officer to throw up his 3-goggles, you’re doing it right. Go Cats!

And the winner goes to…GIRL ON THE ROOF! What says dedication like scaling the side of a roof to get a pic of State Street with your 3-goggles? This girl gets it.

Check back tomorrow for the next part of the countdown to the Final Four, “4 keys to beating Wisconsin”!
