“After seeing the crowd and enthusiasm in Commonwealth Stadium for the Blue/White Game a few months ago we are very anxious to get back in front of the Big Blue Nation,” said UK head coach Mark Stoops. “Fan Day is not only an opportunity for our players to interact with our great fans, but for us to get on the Commonwealth Stadium field and get some work in. We are very excited to get the players here for fall camp and get this season going.”
 
The event will complete the opening week of fall camp for the 2013 Kentucky Wildcats, who are scheduled to report for fall camp on Saturday, Aug. 3 and Sunday, August 4.
