Kentucky Wildcats Football Tickets
The Schedule in 2013
The SEC is one of the toughest and most feared
conferences in the country, and every teams schedule is marked with Top 25 competition. The #1 Alabama Crimson Tide looms
on most teams schedules. For the Kentucky Wildcats, the 2013 schedule has been vicious, with games against 4 teams ranked
amongst the best in college football including the Crimson Tide. There are no easy games in the SEC and the Wildcats will
relish their role as spoilers down the stretch. Fans will pack Commonwealth Stadium every Saturday to cheer on their Wildcats
against some of the best teams in the sport.
Coming off a huge victory over the Alabama State Hornets of the SWAC, who
are 6-3 on the year, the Kentucky Wildcats want to close out the year with a bang. The next game on their schedule would send
shocks through the SEC and the country if the Wildcats could pull of an upset over the #8 Missouri Tigers. Wildcats fans will
no doubt bring their A game to Commonwealth Stadium on November 9, creating a tough home field advantage that will hopefully
help them pull of this upset victory over the Tigers.
Their final home game of the 2013 season comes when the Wildcats
welcome one of their old SEC rivals, the Tennessee Volunteers. The Vols are also having a tough year in the SEC and each team
would love to enjoy a big win over their SEC rivals to close out conference play. This battle is one not to be missed as the
Wildcats say goodbye to their Seniors in an emotional and spirited day at Commonwealth Stadium.
Kentucky Wildcats are predominately known for their men's basketball program, but the school's football program also enjoys
an illustrious football tradition. As a member of the Southeast Conference, or SEC, the Wildcats play in the toughest conference
in the country. The SEC is made up of some of the most successful football programs like the Alabama Crimson Tide, Tennessee
Volunteers, LSU Tigers, Florida Gators and Auburn Tigers, to name just a few. The Kentucky Wildcats have one National Championship
in the program's history, won in 1950 under famed college coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. Bryant went on to win 7 National Championships
in his career as a head coach, including 6 with the Alabama Crimson tide in Tuscaloosa. Many decorated NFL players got their
start in Lexington including quarterback Tim Couch, quarterback George Blanda, wide receiver Randall Cobb and center Dermontii
In the 2013 season, the Kentucky Wildcats are 2-6 overall and winless in 4 games in the SEC. They are definitely
looking to turn the tides on their season with four SEC matchups still on the schedule against #8 Missouri, and rivals Tennessee,
Vanderbilt and Georgia. Sophomore quarterback Jalen White is enjoying a nice year with five passing touchdowns and five rushing
touchdowns and splitting time with Maxwell Smith at quarterback. There is no surrender in this talented team, so look for
the Wildcats to finish strong and make sure you get to Commonwealth Stadium to cheer them on.
is no atmosphere quite like an SEC stadium on gameday. Tens of thousands of students, alumni and members of the community
come out to support their team, decked out in school colors. Gameday really starts early in the morning with face paint, signs
and, of course, tailgating. Any sports fan would love to experience this special atmosphere, so get tickets to see the Kentucky
Wildcats match up against their fierce SEC rivals at Commonwealth Stadium before the season ends.
With capacity at 70,000
fans, Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Kentucky, hosts one of the best gameday atmosphere in the country. With fireworks
shot into the sky after every touchdown, and the stadium filled with Wildcat Blue & White, fans see some of the best college
football players in the country play every Saturday. Commonwealth Stadium has hosted one of the most spectacular finishes
in college football history, known as the Bluegrass Miracle. In November 2002, the Wildcats were hosting the #1 LSU Tigers,
when LSU quarterback Marcus Randall threw a pass as time expired that looked to be short of the end zone as screamibgn Wildcats
fans stormed the field. Wide receiver Devery Henderson ended up with the ball after it was deflected by a Kentucky player,
leading to a spectacular and unbelievable LSU victory. Though it may be a game that Wildcat fans would like to forget, the
Bluegrass Miracle is a part of Commonwealth Stadium and SEC lore.
The SEC is packed with
ranked teams, year after year, making it the most feared conference in the country. The Alabama Crimson Tide have won three
of the last four National Championships, and are ranked #1 again in 2013 and seem set for a trip to the Rose Bowl in January
with hopes of another Coaches Trophy. With newcomers to the SEC Missouri and Texas A&M ranked in the Top 10, the SEC is
only getting stronger. An SEC team has won the National Championship every year since 2006, with LSU, Auburn, Florida and
Alabama taking home the top honors.
Current Green Bay Packer wide receiver Randall Cobb
once changed his number for a game in the middle of the 2008 football season. Why did he change his number?
Dicky Lyons tore two ligaments in a loss to South Carolina, ending his college football career. To honor Lyons, Randall Cobb
changed his jersey to wear Lyons' #12 jersey the following week in a game against Arkansas.
