Good morning. Big Blue Nation, the football program appreciates you so much. Kroger Field was lit this season because of you. Thanks for showing up, and don’t forget to watch the last two regular season football games on TV.

What else are we mixing into today’s Brew?

🏀 Welcome to the fam
🏒 Upcoming hockey game
🔵 And much, much more!


🔼 New Face. Kentucky just got a new teammate for the 2024-2025 season. Jayden Quaintance signed his National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Kentucky. Quaintance is a five-star center who is 6ft. 9in. and had 19 different colleges offer him spots on their teams. The schools that he dismissed include SEC schools Florida and Missouri, Big Ten Ohio State, and USF in the AAC.

🔼 Ice Masters. Did you know Kentucky has an ice hockey club team? The Wildcats have been going strong so far this season and were just ranked No. 6 in the nation. The team is also ranked No. 3 in the Southeast Region of the ACHA and has a game coming up this weekend. On Saturday, the men will play its second annual Greek Night game against the University of Cincinnati, and the puck drop is at midnight. 


Chance for Victory. The men’s soccer team is getting ready to compete in the NCAA Tournament tomorrow. In the program’s past years, the team has been in the NCAA Championships quite a few times.

Today’s question— how many years in a row has the team made it to the NCAA Championships?

Loving Others. Kentucky Athletics is not just all about the sports. It’s a program that makes everyone feel special. Last weekend at the home football game, Sochi was the Lift Them Up Kid of the Game and got to ride through the Catwalk. We also recognized three Power of Women honorees at Sunday’s women’s basketball game. SGM Narrah Stallard, SSG Carly Wilson and SGT Caelin Taylor are all from the Kentucky National Guard and work tirelessly to serve the local community.
