UK Basketball 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (8/14/13) – For the fifth time in program history, and the second consecutive year, the ESPN College GameDay tour will visit Kentucky’s historic Rupp Arena for a weekly installment of the popular college basketball preview show. ESPN has selected the Florida-Kentucky matchup on Feb. 15 as one of its eight College GameDay stops during the 2013-14 season.
 
The conference game between Kentucky and Florida is slated for a 9 p.m. ET tip on ESPN. The show will air live at 11 a.m. ET and again later that day at 8 p.m. ET leading into the opening tip.

Since its inception during the 2004-05 season, College GameDay has featured the Wildcats eight total times, including this year’s upcoming appearance. This will mark Florida’s sixth overall appearance in its school’s history.
 
GameDay last visited Rupp Arena during the 2012-13 season when the Wildcats hosted the Missouri Tigers. The game didn’t disappoint with UK posting an exciting 90-83 overtime win. The Blue and White own a 4-0 record on days when it is featured by the GameDay crew under John Calipari’s direction and has been selected for the show in each year of Calipari’s tenure at UK.
 
Last year, a crowd of 15,087 attended the morning GameDay show, the second largest ever. UK also holds the record for the largest crowd in GameDay history of 22,144, set on Feb. 13, 2010.

The Wildcats have faced Florida in three of their seven previous GameDay appearances, with the other meetings coming against Missouri (2013), Vanderbilt (2012), Tennessee (2010) and Mississippi State (2005).
 
Entering its 10th season, ESPN’s College GameDay Covered by State Farm – the eight-week Saturday morning and evening college basketball program originating from the site of ESPN’s Saturday Primetime Presented by DIRECTV telecast – begins  Jan. 18 with a special split-site show. The first hour begins at 10 a.m. ET on ESPNU, continuing at 11 a.m. on ESPN with a one-hour evening edition leading into the Saturday Primetime game-of-the-week on ESPN.
