For the first time in more than 75 years, the University of Kentucky is hosting a Thursday night football game. The nationally televised contest is expected to impact thousands of area residents.
UK football is normally only played on Saturdays. But On Thursday October 15, the Wildcats will host the Auburn Tigers in an evening game. Mayor Jim Gray says asking for those affected for their patience. “A lot of patience," added Gray. "Chief (Barnard) said a little bit of patience, I would say a lot of patience.”
