Going to Kentucky football Fan Day? Here's complete information to get you there and in the right spot.
-- The event is Friday, Aug. 9, with gates opening at 6 p.m. for autograph sessions and an open practice scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
We're going to try to have it as normal a practice as we can," Mark Stoops said Wednesday. "Of course, we're in the stadium, so it won't be exactly the way we've been doing things here (on the normal practice fields), because we have a lot more room when we're doing our two-spot (practice two units on separate fields) and all our drills going on. We do want to have a good, full practice and let the fans see it."
-- Admission and parking is free. The blue, red, green, purple, and orange lots are all available, as are parking structures 1 and 7 on campus.
-- Autograph lines will be at each gate surrounding Commonwealth Stadium, with a different position group available at each. UK requests a limit of one autograph per person and no stopping for pictures.
-- Kentucky football posters and schedule cards available outside each gate for fans to pick up entering the stadium for autographs. The 2013 UK Football Yearbook can be purchased at any gate.
-- Field Gates B, C and D will be open during the autograph session for fans to take pictures on C.M. Newton Field.
-- Season ticket holders can pick up their special edition poster by presenting their postcard at program stands located at merchandise locations in the East end zone, West end zone, outside Wildcat Den near Gate 3 and at the Southwest Service Gate between Gates 9 and 10.
