Kentucky and Texas El-Paso are attempting to play a game in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1966 "Glory Road" game, according to Darren Hunt, a TV reporter covering the Miners.

According to UTEP coach Tim Floyd, as relayed by Hunt, the two programs are trying to play on Martin Luther King Day in Maryland, at the site where the original game was played.

That 1966 game, between an all-white Kentucky starting five and an all-black Texas Western starting five (they are now UTEP), was a historic game that has been chronicled in movies, documentaries and books.
