Kentucky’s game against South Carolina is now SOLD OUT

Mark Stoops begged fans to come out in full force on Saturday, and the Big Blue Nation answered the call.

Kentucky’s game this weekend against South Carolina is officially SOLD OUT.

The UK ticket office sent out the following announcement:

With 60,037 fans in attendance, Kroger Field wasn’t officially a sell-out against Mississippi State on Saturday, but their presence sure made an impact on the game. The stadium was rocking from start to finish, and it was a big reason why the Cats were able to dominate against the No. 14 team in the nation.

Mark Stoops acknowledged on his call-in show how much it helped his team on Saturday and asked for a similar atmosphere against the Gamecocks this weekend.

“Without a doubt (the fans) made a difference. They affected the outcome of the game,” Stoops said. “Our composure was a big piece of the game last week. With a crowd almost at capacity, it was key for our team to stay composed throughout the game. This Saturday we really need the stadium to be filled again for another big game. …We need it upped again this week.”

Ask and you shall receive, coach. The Big Blue Nation will be there loud and proud on Saturday.

Well done, folks.

    Word on a blackout, blue out, pom poms or rally towels?

    I was at the swamp when the streak was broken and at the game against MS State. The crowd was pretty loud last week considering the weather ect. There were cat fans last game that wouldn’t stand or yell at all throughout the entire time. Please be loud and get up every defense snap when South Carolina is on the field! The players and Stoops have acknowledged how much it helped last game. The BBN needs to take it to a whole new level. Staying loud throughout the entire game can help control momentum shifts.

    I feel like the number for last weeks game is deceiving. No doubt it was packed but there were still seats open all over the place. Rain had a lot to do with it. But give credit to all the other fans who braved it out because the place was loud. Went back and watched the game replay and you could hear the roar over the tv. Gets me excited about how it’ll be this weekend

    Every team in America counts tickets sold as attendance, not butts in the seats.

    Bring it, BBN! If you can talk at all on Sunday, you’re doing it wrong!

    A sell out is impressive. Game attendance is down all over the country. Go Cats!
