Kentucky Football’s Record on Halloween

This year the Julian and lunar calendar align to create an extra spooky Halloween.

In 2020 All Hallow’s Eve will be lit by a full moon, a blue moon in fact, a rare lunar event notating the second full moon in one calendar month. It’s also on a Saturday night, the ideal day for trick-or-treaters, partiers and college football fans.

The last time America saw a blue moon on Halloween was 1944. It’s not that rare of an occurrence for a Kentucky football game.

Saturday’s matchup against No. 5 Georgia at Kroger Field will be the 13th time the Wildcats have played on Halloween since 1900 and the first such meeting since the Wildcats lost 52-21 to Tennessee in 2015. The Wildcats are 4-8 on Halloween, last claiming a 14-7 win over Virginia Tech on October 31, 1987.

      I like the way you see things.

      Blue moon can only mean one thing: Big Blue Upset.

      No one is picking the Cats. In fact, perhaps someone said we can only beat UGA “once in a blue moon”. Well…let’s do it.

    Nick, You mean the Gregorian calendar, I believe.
