LEXINGTON, Ky. — It’s almost time for the Governor’s Cup. Kentucky and Louisville kick off at noon ET Saturday at Kroger Field.
Here are pregame notes and observations:
- Nick Haynes blasted the Kentucky coaching staff on Twitter Friday night, but he participated in the Cat Walk on Saturday morning. It’s unclear what his status will be. Haynes hasn’t played since the Missouri game as he’s struggled to keep weight on because of Type 1 diabetes.
- It’s Senior Day in Lexington. Quarterback Stephen Johnson is set for his last home start of his career. We took a walk with Johnson through his final Cat Walk.
- Kentucky is going with a new look today: chrome helmets, anthracite jerseys and blue pants. Louisville is wearing shiny red helmets, white jerseys and white pants.
