Tent City is at capacity with 585 tents, but if you’re not in one of them, have no fear, UK has devised a way for you to still enjoy the unique and crazy atmosphere. Tonight, the UK Sports Network will debut “Tent City Live presented by Papa John’s,” a two-night live stream broadcast from the heart of the campout.
From 8-10 p.m. ET tonight, Dave Baker and Christi Thomas will host, and tomorrow night, our own Matt Jones will host from 8-10 p.m. Special guests will join throughout, including John Calipari, Tom Leach, and Freddie Maggard. Something tells me you’ll see a few more KSR personalities on Thursday night too.
There are plenty of giveaways and contests for the campers, including a Fischer’s hot dog grilling station, complete with a hot dog eating contest. (This has Ryan Lemond’s name all over it.) Tomorrow night is the night the players will pass out Papa John’s pizza, and there will also be an opportunity for eight lucky fans to test their Kentucky Basketball knowledge against one another in the Academy Sports+Outdoors eight-person trivia bracket challenge.
To watch, tune in to UKathletics.com/tentcitylive tonight and tomorrow night from 8-10 p.m. ET.
