SEC Media Days saved the best for last. The penultimate act at the kickoff event will be Mark Stoops, who takes center stage in the Grand Ballroom at the Wynfrey Hotel this morning at 11:20 ET. You can stream Stoops’ entire press conference on Watch ESPN or catch the action on the SEC Network.
Stoops will be accompanied by wide receiver Lynn Bowden, offensive guard Logan Stenberg and linebacker Kash Daniel. A year after Benny Snell told the rest of the SEC he was the best running back in the conference, UK brought a triumvirate that has never shied away from making bold statements.
The SEC media will wonder how Kentucky can maintain its success after a ten-win season, while the players and their head coach will ask why they haven’t earned more respect. The rubber will soon meet the road here at Hoover.
When and Where You Can Catch the Cats
I will join the local media contingency that gets the first crack at the Cats. Once that has wrapped up around 10:00 am, the four will be pulled in a hundred different directions. Aside from the coverage on KSR, SiriusXM features live interviews on Channel 84, beginning with Lynn Bowden at 11:10, Stenberg at 11:35, Kash at 11:50 and Stoops at 12:10. If you prefer SEC Radio, they’ll be exchanging places throughout that time too. The SEC Network will also be recording interviews you can find on TV and online.
UK-Florida is almost Sold Out
Two weeks after going on sale, the single-ticket allotment for the highly-anticipated matchup with Florida at Kroger Field is sold out. Purchasing season tickets, 4-Game Flex Packs, scattered single seats, or resale tickets through Kentucky’s official resale marketplace is the only way to guarantee seats. Well done, Big Blue Nation. Well done.
Discounted Tickets for Military and First Responders
Each year at Heroes’ Day, military and first responders receive a complimentary ticket to Kroger Field. This year it will be held September 7 vs. Eastern Michigan. UK is extending their hospitality to military and first responders, offering discounted tickets to every single home game, thanks to a partnership with Govx.
