Mark Stoops urging fans to fill Commonwealth on Saturday

11/01/2016 07:24 PM

This has been a football season for Kentucky that has presented a game each week that brought great importance in terms of what a win and loss can do. This Saturday is no different when Kentucky takes on Georgia.

The Bulldogs opened as a two and a half point favorite over UK, but there’s no question that Kentucky is the team with the momentum heading into Saturday’s game.

Kentucky has won five of their last six games, with their only loss coming to a top-ranked Alabama team. A game this weekend against 4-4 Georgia presents Mark Stoops’ team with a huge opportunity to make a little more room in the standings and keep their dream of winning the SEC East alive.

Mark Stoops says he’s hoping Big Blue Nation comes to Commonwealth on Saturday to give his team a push. KSTV discussed the importance of the fans showing up on Saturday.
