Need to know: Tennessee welcomes Kentucky to Neyland Stadium
The Wildcats are coming to town this weekend!
The Vols take on Kentucky at 3:30 p.m. in Neyland Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 10. Kentucky won the first game between the two schools, way back in 1893, and got the victory the last time the two met on the field.
Before last year's 29-26 win by the Wildcats, the Vols dominated the series, including a streak of 26 straight victories from 1985 to 2010. Kentucky defeated the Vols in 2011, then lost again up until last season. They haven't won a game in Neyland Stadium in 34 years.
The Wildcats are having a much better 2018 season than the Vols, with a 7-2 overall record (5-2 in the SEC) and are nationally ranked. Tennessee has struggled to a 4-5 overall record (1-4 in the SEC) and needs to win 2 of its final 3 games to become bowl-eligible
There are still tickets available for the game.
Volunteer Village offers pregame festivities for fans of all ages. Located in the Humanities Plaza, Volunteer Village features pregame appearances from Smokey, Junior Smokey, cheerleaders and UT’s dance team.
The Pride of the Southland Band will begin marching at 1:50. The band marches up Volunteer Boulevard past Peyton Manning Pass and crosses the new Pedestrian Bridge before turning onto Middle Drive and then onto Phillip Fulmer Way, stopping to "Salute the Hill" before marching into the stadium through Gate 21.
