WATCH: Rupp Arena sings the National Anthem in Unison

Last night was one of the best Rupp Arena atmospheres in a LONG time, maybe since North Carolina in 2010. That, in turn, called for a special big-game-feel moment when UK brought out Opera Theatre director Dr. Evertt McCovey to lead the sell-out crowd in singing the national anthem.

Hearing a sellout crowd in unison like that before a huge game never gets old.

    Remember this same exact experience a few years ago against Louisville. By far the best national anthem I’ve ever experienced live

    This gave me chills. Enjoy and support moments like these because there are those who would gladly take them away.

    That was great! There was a football game a couple of years ago where we did that, also. It was really cool to be a part of that.

    This needs to become a Rupp tradition – no one else does this, and no one else has someone like McCorvey to lead it. I’m all for putting “National Anthem Day” on the schedule; get someone to sponsor flag pins, hand out sheet music at the gate (let’s hear some harmony!), and make it “one of those Kentucky things.”
