The Jordan-Hare Stadium, which usually close to 90,000 spectators, will be reduced to 20 percent because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the home side, including head coach Gus Malzahn, is looking forward to the game.
“When it’s a regular game day and we’ve got 90,000 fans, there’s no better place in all of college football as far as atmosphere than here,” Malzahn said.
“The fact that the majority of our fans are going to be students – our student section is always one of the best, if not the best in the country, and I know they’re going to have their A-game and will be loud as possible to help us win.”
After months of uncertainty, Malzahn is excited about getting football back on the schedule, noting that he’s particularly looking forward to seeing this year’s team play.
“I’m really excited about this year’s team,” Malzahn added. “We have all kinds of new faces out there. I believe we have 13 new starters, so I’m really excited to watch this team grow.
“If we stay healthy, we’ll have a chance to improve each game, and of course with 10 SEC games, it’s important for teams to improve throughout the year.”
Meanwhile Kentucky enters this game on a four-game winning run, dating back to last year.
One of the highlighted players returning for the Wildcats is senior quarterback Terry Wilson, who is back after he missed the final 11 games of last season, following a patellar tendon tear in his right knee against Eastern Michigan in the second game of the season.
“He missed the year and that hurts but he’s still older and wiser and has more understanding of the offense,” UK coach Mark Stoops said.
“It comes with reps. We’ve got to have a great week and he’s got to get out there and get started. We’ll ease into it with a road game at Auburn.”
