Kentucky football will “Stripe the Stadium” against Mississippi State

Kentucky will take on the No. 14 Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday, with a chance at the top-20 on the line for the Wildcats. With each team sitting pretty at 3-0 and major season implications at stake, most fans expected some tricks up the sleeves of those at UK Athletics.

Most thought we’d see a blackout, the debut of new jerseys/helmets, special guests, or something of the sort.

Today, we have the first official pre-Mississippi State announcement, where UK Athletics has asked the Big Blue Nation to dress in specific colors to “stripe the stadium.Sections 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12-20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 202, 204, 206, 208, 210, 222, 224, 226, 228, and 230 are expected to wear blue, while the other sections are being asked to wear white.

This seems to take away the opportunity for a possible blackout, though we may see some new helmets or jersey combinations under the lights on Saturday night.

What else should we expect from the athletic department this week to prepare for the Bulldogs?

      Give the blue sections white Pom poms and white sections blue Pom poms. What makes the white Pom Poms they give us so good I think is the blue that the crowd wears under them

      On board instead of in board. Figured I’d correct it before someone else says something sarcastic about someone spelling again.

    Please no pom poms. They pass those out and people don’t clap or make noise as they only shake them. I say pass out blue and white cow bells – if Mississippi st gets a pass to use them at their home games we should be able to. Want to hear people screaming and clapping Saturday night – get loud when they have the ball. Go CATS!

    Want something louder than a cowbell? Get a milk jug or plastic bottle and put some gravel in it. Get thousands shaking those and you’ll have some noise. Went to a high school game where all the fans brought milk jugs with gravel and shook them. Talk about loud!

    Stripes? Might as well do Checkerboard! 🙂
