UK’s pop-up ticket shop just opened up outside the Walmart in Paintsville to a long line of eager fans. Many of those fans were lined up hours before the 4 p.m. start time to ensure they’re able to purchase the special $10 tickets to Saturday’s game against Mississippi State.
It’s a genius idea by the folks at UK to put butts in the seats, and by the look of the early turnout today, a lot of those empty seats are going to get filled by the good people of Eastern Kentucky. UK took 3,000 tickets to Paintsville.
Here’s another photo from the scene:
